Everyone is welcome at the Houston Zen Center, all people, of all histories, circumstances, and abilities. The practice of studying the self that we cultivate in Zen includes an open–hearted awareness and investigation of the ways that social identities open us to connection and also erect barriers to our connection with one another. We believe that the lucidity of beginner’s mind enables us to form a beloved community that welcomes people of all genders, races, ethnicities, sexual orientation, classes, nationalities, ages, and abilities.

Houston Zen Center is comprised of a diverse group of practitioners. Our Kaleidoscope Working Group focuses on on–going study, discussion and action on issues of diversity and multiculturalism.

The group meets regularly and schedules workshops throughout the year.

The group also maintains a list of upcoming events and action opportunities in the city.

For information on the group, including joining the group's various activities, please e–mail Kaleidoscope.
