LAPZ is a new Zen group in LA. People from different walks of life come together to Sit Zen in public spaces, e.g. beach, park, street. LAPZ is not about retreats, but about settling into everyday places.

Zazen, literally "Sitting Zen", is the core practice in Zen. It is very simple. You sit with an upright posture and stay aware. It is just sitting. There is nothing else to do, nothing to change, and nothing to achieve. 

Following the time of sitting, there will also be time for Q&A, short talks by Zen monk Seikan, discussion, tea, more sitting, anything.

Whether you're totally new to Zen or have prior experience, please feel free to join LAPZ and allow yourself to experience whatever you may experience. Everybody is always welcome!
