Sky Island Zen is in the lineage of Everyday Zen, founded by Zoketsu Norman Fischer which in turn follows the Soto Zen lineage through San Francisco Zen Center and back to Dogen Zenji. Our guiding teacher is Hoka Chris Fortin, our founding priest is Shozan Mary Koopman, and our Head of Doan Ryo is Dai Marie Olson.
We meet regularly on Saturday mornings at 8.30 AM for zazen and service, and on Tuesday evenings at 5:45 for meditation and a dharma dialogue. Click here for a full schedule and directions.
The mission of Sky Island Zen is to offer a place to practice together, whether you are a first time or long-term practitioer. All are welcome.
Sky Island Zen is located at 4002 E 4th Street, Tucson, AZ 85711.
