Q&A Night With Brad Warner
Half hour sit, followed by talk and tea. Instead of a prepared dharma talk Brad will be taking questions from the internet and the group. Dig deep y'all. You can email us your questions in advance ([masked]) or bring them with you to the sit. All are welcome! (Please don't let the lack of RSVPs discourage you from coming. We are a long established group. Most of our members are not Meetup members and do not RSVP.) Suggested donation: $10-15

What we're about

Angel City Zen Center is a Soto Zen Buddhist group that meets throughout the week in Echo Park 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.

Please don't let the lack of RSVPs discourage you from coming. We are a long established group. Most of our members are not Meetup members and do not RSVP.

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