Welcome to Citrus Zen!
NOTICE: Due to the growing concerns surrounding COVID-19 and the urging by local officials to limit public gatherings, we are temporarily suspending all Citrus Zen activities until further notice. Please continue your daily practice and take good care of one another. See you soon!
We are a Zen Buddhist group affiliated with Yokoji Zen Mountain Center (zmc). We meet every Tuesday evening from 6:30pm to 8:30pm (see schedule for details). 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.
We meet every Tuesday evening from 6:30pm to 8:30pm.
6:00pm Setup and Zazen (Meditation) instruction.

*We sit zazen in place of the dharma talk the first Tuesday of each month.
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.
In order to accommodate an extensive temple renovation, we are meeting in a temporary structure located at the north/west corner of the property. Please consider wearing warmer clothes during this time as the space is cooler.
