Located in Gainesville, Florida, the Gateless Gate Zen Center is a group dedicated to providing anyone an opportunity to study, practice, and integrate Zen Buddhism into their lives.

Anyone is welcome to attend weekly practice every Tuesday evening, from 6:30pm until 8:00pm.

If you are a newcomer or beginner and would like a brief introduction to Zen meditation and practice, please feel free to arrive anytime after 6:00pm.

Donations are gratefully appreciated, but are certainly not necessary to attend.

The Gateless Gate Zen Center is an affiliate of the Kwan Um School of Zen.
