The Anchorage Zen Community and its practice space, Uto-an, are committed to providing authentic Soto Zen Buddhist practice and teachings to all who are interested. We welcome people of any faith or background who are interested in cultivating compassion, awareness, and wisdom in their daily lives.

Our schedule includes daily zazen and chanting, regular instruction for newcomers, study groups, prison volunteer work, and dharma talks; we also hold one-day sittings, sesshin, precepts ceremonies, and more. We are a non-residential community, voluntarily maintained and supported by our members. If you have questions about the practice at Uto-an, feel free to contact us at:  zen AT alaska-zen DOT org  (AT & DOT are symbols).
