ABOUT BLUE CLIFF ZEN CENTER | ABOUT MATT SHINKAI KANE
Blue Cliff Zen Center was started by Matt Shinkai Kane and other Zen meditators in Eugene, Oregon in 2014 at the request of Shinzan Miyamae Roshi of Gyokuryuji Temple (Gifu, Japan). We are a primarily lay-based Rinzai Zen group dedicated to the cultivation of physical and mental well-being and genuine insight (Jpn. kensho, satori). We hold a weekly meditation group, Zen yoga classes, and a wide array of mindfulness courses, workshops, retreats, and ceremonies throughout the year.
Shinkai studied Zen in Japan for over seven years and is certified as a senior Zen teacher in the Hakuin-Inzan line of the Rinzai tradition. Learn more >>
