About

Open Mind Zen Indiana (OMZI) is a community of individuals dedicated to self-discovery through the practice of Zen. Our practice modalities include traditional and contemporary teachings, various styles of meditation, koan study, dharma talks, workshops, retreats, and group discussions. As a lay sangha, we are committed to the flourishing of Zen as realized and expressed in everyday life. 

Our group is affiliated with the Open Mind Zen lineage. Our Indiana sangha meets at two locations; the Unitarian Universalist Church of Bloomington, Indiana, and the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Columbus, Indiana. We also meet online. Please see our schedule for specific information on meetings. 

Everyone is welcome at Open Mind Zen, regardless of race, color, sex, gender identity, age, national origin, ancestry, citizenship, physical or mental disability, or sexual orientation. Our community includes individuals from many faiths and spiritual traditions along with those who profess no faith at all.
