About Zen Center

Zen Center of Pittsburgh is a Soto Zen Buddhist Temple founded in 1999. Zen Center serves the community by offering services, daily meditation and individualized Zen training with our Head Priest, Rev. Kyoki Roberts. Children are welcome. Deep Spring Temple is located just thirty minutes north of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on fourteen isolated acres with stunning views of the Western Pennsylvania forests. We offer monthly retreats and for those who would like to investigate ordination, we offer residency training. We also run a mediation and facilitation service for spiritual communities and other nonprofits. Rev. Roberts is assisted by Senior Priest Rev. Jisen Coghlan.
