We are an internationally renowned, fully accredited Zen Center located in the beautiful mountains of Southern California. Yokoji provides a place for people from all walks of life to practice Zen Buddhism. There are many ways you can do this. Every Sunday we run introductory classes in zazen (Zen meditation). Throughout the year there are events, often on weekends, which focus on various aspects of Zen practice. We hold sesshin (silent meditation retreats) almost every month of the year, ranging from 2-7 days.
