Welcome to East Rock Sangha.

We are a Zen sangha in New England offering Zen training in the tradition of the Diamond Sangha. We offer a 5-day spring sesshin in Western Massachusetts, as well as opportunities for zazenkai and weekly zazen. Our zendos are located on Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts, and in New Haven, Connecticut. We also have smaller sitting groups in Concord and New Bedford, MA as well as Portland ME. We encourage you to read about our sangha and teacher and reach out if you have questions.
