What we're about

Everyone is welcome, whether you have experience with Zen meditation or not. Instruction will be given for newcomers. Please arrive by 6:40pm as the instruction will begin at 6:45pm.

We meet every Tuesday at the "Partners in Wellness" Annex at the Desert Hills Presbyterian Church, 56750 Mountain View Trail Yucca Valley. We ask for a $1 donation per person which goes to the church for the use of the space. Be in your seat by 6:55pm at the latest if you've attended before. See the pictures for where to park.

Mojave Zen is a satellite group of Yokoji Zen Mountain Center. The group is led by Jim Yugen Lakey, a senior Zen Priest who trained under Tenshin Roshi as a resident at Yokoji from 2008 - 2013.

If you have your own meditation mat and cushion, or bench, please bring them with you. Newcomers will be given instruction on how to sit in a chair for meditation. There are padded chairs available to use.

We start every Tuesday at 7pm and sit two 30 minutes periods of meditation with 10 minutes of kinhin, or walking meditation, in between. We then take a 15 minute break and wrap up the evening with a short talk, finishing at around 8:45pm.
