We at Great Wave invite you to share in the wisdom and compassion of Zen Buddhism. Ours is a religion grounded in the practice of meditation, a tradition that helps us care for ourselves and others, promotes the development of personal character, and naturally heals us of our suffering. We hope you will explore this site to learn how you too might enjoy the benefits of Zen practice. To begin, we suggest that you read the Starting Zen Practice page. And, if you feel you may already be interested in learning first-hand about Zen meditation, please call us at 231-233-7111 or use our Contact form to schedule an orientation. We will do all we can to assist you in your search.
