The Gateless Gate Zen Center is located in Gainesville, Florida and is dedicated to providing North Central Florida with an opportunity to learn about and practice Zen in the Kwan Um School of Zen tradition.
In addition, the center devotes great time and energy to reaching out to prison inmates to provide them with an opportunity to develop the self-care and academic skills that they will need in order to succeed in enduring their term and re-integrating into society.
