What we're about

Yokoji Long Beach Zen Meditation Group (LBZMG) is led by Arthur WaYu Kennedy and is affiliated with Yokoji-Zen Mountain Center, an international Zen Center located in the Mountains East of the L.A. basin. We have a fantastic Saturday morning program which includes two half hour periods of sitting meditation with approximately 10 minute walking meditation in between. Afterwards, coffee, tea, and snacks are served, and then a Dharma talk by one of Tenshin Roshi's senior students. We also have a Thursday evening sit which consists of just 2 half hour sitting periods with walking meditation in between.
