Soto Zen center opens in Milbridge

New on the spiritual scene in Downeast Maine is Great Ocean Zen Community, a small Soto Zen center located at the head of Pigeon Hill Bay in Milbridge.

The community’s resident priest is the Rev. Joshu Judith Toland, Ph.D., disciple of Shokaku Okumura, Roshi, abbott of Sanshinji temple, known author, teacher, former director of the Soto Zen International Center and one of the foremost translators of the works of Eihei Dogen, founder of the Soto School of Zen Buddhism.

Dogen Zenji teaches: “To study the Buddha Way is to study the self; to study the self is to forget the self; to forget the self is to be one with all beings…” i.e. if we drop our ‘ego mind,’ the ‘I’ of the self, and learn to be one with others by practicing the mind of non-discrimination, non-judgment and non-separate self, we discover our ‘original face.’”

Great Ocean Zen Community’s goal is to provide a place where those who study and meditate together may realize the peace that is innate to all.

All are welcome.
