About Detroit St. Zen Center
The purpose of Zen practice is to settle into nonconceptual mind – our being prior to any description, labeling, judging – our conceptual mind- it is experiencing reality as it is, directly and functioning (living) it 24 hours a day. It is the manifestation of the completely mature human being.
