Dogen Sangha Los Angeles is a Soto Zen Buddhist group that meets every Saturday morning at the Veterans Memorial Complex in Culver City, CA and Monday evenings at Silver Lake Yoga in Silverlake, CA.

Our group is led and was founded by Brad Warner, an ordained zen monk and author of the popular books HARDCORE ZEN and SIT DOWN AND SHUT UP (among others). We are affiliated with Dogen Sangha International, founded by Brad’s teacher, Gudo Nishijima.

Our main practice is shikantaza (just sitting) zazen (sitting meditation). Our day generally consists of two 30 minutes periods of zazen followed by a lecture/discussion with Brad.

PLEASE DON'T LET THE LACK OF RSVPs SCARE YOU OFF. We are a long established group. Our members are not meetup members and do not RSVP.

We hope you'll join our motley, but dedicated band of misfits!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
