Meditation & Discussion
The class will consist of thirty minutes of Zen meditation followed by discussion. There will be instructions, so beginners are encouraged to join. Zen meditation is simple and the technique can be learned in just a few minutes, though it may take years to refine it.

What we're about

Dogen Sangha Los Angeles is a Soto Zen Buddhist group that meets every Saturday morning, Monday and Wednesday evenings at Angel City Zen Center in Los Angeles, 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!
