Upright Noble Zen is a small community of practitioners dedicated to supporting each other in direct exploration and expression of Fundamental Truth.
Dana Kojun Lederhos grew up in Anchorage and returned in 2014 after completing a 14-year course of training at Great Vow Zen Monastery in Oregon. She is a Soto Zen lineage holder and a member of both the Soto Zen Buddhist Association and the White Plum Asanga.
Zen Buddhism is about waking up. It is not necessary to “be a Buddhist” in order to practice with us. This journey of waking up is for anyone of any religious tradition.
Newcomers are always welcome. Come sit with us!
