Welcome to Citrus Zen!

If you are new to Zen practice and need zazen (meditation) instruction, please arrive early. Chairs and meditation cushions are provided. You are welcome to bring your personal cushion if you prefer.

Daisan (private meeting) with Chigen Sensei is available for those who regularly attend Citrus Zen or are members of Yokoji Zen Mountain Center. A sign-up sheet is posted next to the Buddha Hall entrance.
Update: In order to accommodate an extensive temple renovation, we are meeting in a temporary structure located at the north/west corner of the property.
We meet at Tu Vien Quan Am Temple located at 12670 18th St. in Redlands CA. We are near the corner of Outer HWY 10 and 18th Street. Look for the large statues. Please drive through the gate and park near the temple.
