Welcome to



Zen Buddhism in Hyannis, Massachusetts.


Hyannis Zendo

Hyannis Zendo was established in 2009 as a space to learn and practice meditation, study Zen, share in community, and to explore what this practice means in our lives. We are located in the West End of Hyannis, MA.

At Hyannis Zendo, we practice sitting meditation (zazen), walking meditation (kinhin), offer weekly instruction, Zen interviews, dharma talks, and the practice of mindful eating in the formal Zen style (oriyoki). We also hold a monthly day of intensive meditation practice (zazenkai). Please see our schedule for more information.
