Welcome to our website

 The temple is open for fully vaccinated people and as in all public places we ask that you wear a mask indoors.

Our temple is a quiet space located in the mountains north of Ojai, dedicated to the practice of Serene Reflection Meditation  (Soto Zen).   Two resident monks, Rev. Phoebe and Rev. Seikai,  offer meditation instruction, spiritual guidance as well as ceremonies and Dharma talks.  For now we are open Wednesday – Sunday for day visits only, by appointment.

We have resumed the Meditation Group Meetings in the Ojai Library on the second Thursday of the month, Dec. 9, from 6 pm – 8 pm. Please let the temple know if you plan to attend.

Please continue to take good care of yourselves,  thank you for keeping the temple in mind. If you are able to help with general maintenance, cleaning or shopping, please let us know.

We are doing a memorial ceremony every Wednesday, in honor of all those who have died the week before.  We offer this to anyone who is not able to have a “proper” funeral or is mourning in isolation.  If you have any names in particular you would like to add, please let us know.


In the traditional Buddhist practice of Dana we set no fixed fee for any of our offerings, and ask that you please support us by making a donation based on what you can afford.
