The Sangha of the Compassionate Heart is open 

Please Note:

We will be CLOSED Thursday, December 29 - Friday, January 6.

We require face-covering and observe six feet of physical distancing in our seating and walking areas.  

Why go out to a Zen Center?

What can we offer that is not available online or in books?  Like learning to swim or play the saxophone, meditation is best learned by instruction and practicing with others.

The Sangha of the Compassionate Heart Zen Center is a Zen meditation group led by senior instructor Christine Otto.

Anyone is welcome to join us for meditation at any of the scheduled times. You will be greeted at the front door.

Christine Otto was trained in the traditions of Soto Zen Buddhism by the Reverend Bob McNeil and provides instruction in Zen meditation three days a week at our Zen center.

The Zen center is located at:
11708 Massinger St, Lakewood, CA  90715
