Sokuji Zendo has its roots in Soto Zen Buddhist tradition.

Sokuji is a Zen Buddhist community located in Bemidji Minnesota. We embrace the image of the “frozen lotus”, surviving intense deep winters, blossoming in summer with roots in the mud, both beautiful and hardy!

We gather weekly  for silent sitting meditation followed by tea and conversation focusing on how Zen practice supports healthy relationships with ourselves, other people, and all of life.

Thursday evenings 6:15pm–8:00pm
