All Rivers Zen Study Group is a  philosophy study group founded in 2017.  We believe that the understanding and practice of the Zen way of life is inherently non-denominational and works for the betterment of our members, our communities, and the world at large. Our free online classes are informative, full of lively discussion and open  to anyone who wants to learn more about this ancient life philosophy.
