The Potomac Zen Sangha is located in Alexandria within walking distance of the metro. It is open to the public for meditation and talks by Zen Master Pohwa Sunim. Each class stands on its own and no prior experience is necessary.

We accept donations, but they aren’t necessary. Guidelines are $10 per class, $15 per week, or $50 per month. Suggested student donations are half of these amounts.
