Hazy Moon Zen Center


Los Angeles

The Hazy Moon Zen Center, a training center in Southern California, is directly descended from the late Hakuyu Taizan Maezumi Roshi, upholding the authentic lineage of living Zen Buddhism through committed personal practice and the opportunity to work with a genuine teacher. We offer daily zazen, weekly Dharma talks by our teacher, Nyogen Roshi, intensive retreats and regular classes to help you begin or refine your Zen practice.
