Orientation to the Buddhist Temple of Toledo!
Everyone is Welcome!
Perfect for newly interested or arrived folks, these Sunday afternoon workshops are designed to give those who are interested in learning more about the various activites at the temple. We cover topics such as what it means to work with a teacher, what the Dharma School for kids is, what retreats are, what the Bodhisattvha vows are all about, why we do the liturgical practices we do, etc... Above all there is lots of space to answer questions and learn from some experienced members of the community.

2/22, 3/29, 4/19, 5/24, 6/28, 7/26, 8/23, 9/27, 10/18, 11/22
I am happy to announce that I have offered Jay Rinsen Weik Denbo transmission, the final authorization as an independent Zen Buddhist teacher, and that he has accepted. We are in the process now, and I expect that it will be complete within a few months at most.

A Message from the Temple Priests Rev. Jay Rinsen Weik & Rev. Karen Do-on Weik
Our growing community is made up of a diverse group of people who have perhaps read books about Zen and Buddhist philosophy or tried meditation on their own and then decided to visit and taste for themselves what the cookbook describes. Regular members of the community include area college students and professors, engineers, physicians, homemakers, entrepreneurs, artists, musicians, computer geeks, martial artists, yoga practitioners, children and retired folk.
We sincerely hope you will enjoy exploring this website, and find in it a compelling invitation to come and explore this deep Wisdom Tradition for yourself!
- Rev. Rinsen and Rev. Do-on
