Welcome to Great Wave

Located near the peaceful, sandy shores of Lake Michigan, in the city of Ludington, Great Wave Zen Sangha has served the Zen Buddhist community of west and central Michigan since 2001.

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.
