Many Flowers. One Vase. White Lotus Haven Zen of Connecticut, Inc. is a non-profit American Buddhist community, with roots in Korean Zen. WLHZ celebrates the cultural diversity that is America, and welcomes people of goodwill from all ages, backgrounds, and traditions to participate in WLHZ events. We offer training in the practice of meditation, the teachings of Shakyamuni Buddha, and support within a community of committed practitioners and through weekly practice services, student/teacher study and training for children and adults, participation in Buddhist celebrations and ceremonies, and local and global service opportunities.
Practicing Buddha in the seemingly mundane, everyday situations of life, we endeavor, breath by breath to awaken to each moment as it is — with wisdom and compassion — in order to save all sentient beings from suffering.
