Welcome to Ocean Light Zen Center. We are the Seattle chapter of the Kwan Um School of Zen, a tradition that originated in China more than 1500 years ago, travelled to Korea and was brought to the US by Zen Master Seung Sahn in the 1960’s. Our school now has more than 100 Zen centers around the world, all practicing the same ancient and beautiful chanting, sitting, walking, and other meditation forms.
