During the month of August the temple is closed to visitors so the monks can rest. Reservations may be made for September, please see Upcoming Events.
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 teachers, Reverend Phoebe and Reverend Seikai, offer meditation instruction, retreats and residential training, as well as weekly ceremonies and Dharma talks. To keep the focus of our meditation practice we ask that you switch off your digital devices while at the temple.
Meditation Groups in Ventura and Morro Bay meet once a month.
Funerals, memorials, weddings and house blessings, or a private talk with one of the monks can be arranged upon request.
To use our facilities for a Group Retreat in another Buddhist tradition please contact the temple.
In the traditional Buddhist practice of Dana we set no fixed fee for any of these offerings, and ask that you please make a donation based on what you can afford.
