Upaya Zen Center’s mission is to support a sincere and dedicated practice community to serve others by providing training, retreats, and programs for social and individual transformation. Upaya fosters the integration of Buddhism and engaged Buddhist training, in the areas of death and dying, prison work, peacework, women’s studies, and the environment.  Upaya realizes its vision by being a refuge to the many who come through its temple doors and offering mature programs – traditional, experimental, and systems-based – that meet the needs of people, society, and the environment.
