A community focused Buddhist Sangha

About Us


 Flowing River Zen is a small, but dedicated practice community located in Suffolk county, NY.. Like many Buddhist traditions  we consider the word sangha not exclusive to the monastic community, but to include lay members as well.  Flowing River Zen was founded to help others experience the Dharma and it’s teachings in order to be agents for change in the modern and often times confusing and stressful world.   Our approach is to combine meditation, guided instruction, and community engagement.   We will provide support to the development of your practice and growth. We welcome all, regardless of formal faith affiliation or lack thereof. Our members come from a broad range of backgrounds from young to old, including artists, retirees, students, service workers, attorneys and other professionals.

The resident teacher is Rev. Dr. Brian Shi Shen-Jin Kenna, an OEB Priest.

Better yet, see us in person!

We meet the 1st Wednesday of the Month from 7:00-9:00 PM  

 to engage the power of mindful meditation and Zen Buddhist practice in order to promote human flourishing of both the individual and our community. We value the importance of interfaith dialogue and sharing our common interest that promotes positive respect as we walk the spiritual path together.

Our zendo is hosted by the Michael Braceland Art Gallery. All are welcome no matter where you are on your life journey.
