Zen in Mississippi

Welcome to Zen in Mississippi, the website for formal Zen practice groups in Starkville and Jackson, Mississippi, and an informal sitting group in Hattiesburg. These groups are led by Tony Bland, a Zen Monk and teacher who has been practicing since 1984. We offer zazen (seated meditation), periodic sesshins (retreats), and an occasional "Introduction to Zen Buddhism" workshop (see our schedule). For inquiries, questions, or more information, please feel free to contact us.
