The Lexington Zen Center is a non-profit organization affiliated with the Furnace Mountain Zen Retreat Center in Clay City, Kentucky. The Lexington Center provides a friendly and non-threatening environment for the pursuit of spiritual practice.

We are Buddhist by lineage but we welcome persons of all faiths and spiritual persuasions. In addition to regular Sunday meditation services, we have special Beginner days and we hold several day-long retreats each year.

Getting Here

For the duration of the COVID-19 era we are meeting virtually. You can contact us to get acquainted and to get our Zoom meeting link.


On Sundays the sitting begins at 4:00pm and concludes by about 5:05pm. Follow the links under the Practice menu to learn more about the Sunday sits (or at any rate, to learn how we did them before COVID …).
