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.

“Please don’t lose that very essential part of it,” Maezumi Roshi implores us in this latest excerpt from his series of talks on Uji. “That is, how this very life of each of us is no other than the Genjokoan. Uji itself, see?”
Who says long-distance relationships can’t work? Ben Hutchison, a young husband and father in Cincinnati who learned about the Hazy Moon through Karen Maezen Miller, participated in part of our summer training period and cemented his connection to our Los Angeles sangha.
