Interfaith Awareness & Goodwill. AZC is a member of the Austin Area Interreligious Ministries. AZC members also give presentations at other religious institutions and at interfaith events.
Hospice and Home Care. A team from Austin Zen Center has provided home assistance (running errands, doing housework, hanging out, etc.) for a patient (care partner) with cancer in collaboration with the Interfaith Care Alliance. Zen Center people have also provided end of life care and have begun working with Hospice Austin.
Meditation and Recovery. A twelve-step group meets weekly at Austin Zen Center. It is an AA meeting that integrates meditation periods with discussion.
Prison Program. AZC's Prison Program provides for dharma outreach to those who are incarcerated.
The Austin Zen Center also provides a place for groups engaged in meaningful social action to meet. We also provide a venue for Heritage Neighborhood Association (representing our neighborhood) picnics.
