Ordinary Mind Zendo was founded in 1996 by Barry Magid, a Dharma heir of Charlotte Joko Beck, and is dedicated to her vision of a psychologically minded Zen practice adapted to the needs of American students practicing in the context of their everyday lives. The zendo is a center for non-residential practice and is committed to the proposition that the Dharma can be fully practiced, realized and transmitted in the midst of lay life.
Beginner's instruction is available to those new to Zen practice, while those with many years of experience in other traditions are welcomed to join us in deepening our understanding. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Registration is now open for our Summer 2019 Garrison Sesshin which will take place from July 11th to July 14th. Sesshin at Garrison is an opportunity to deepen our practice, to gather the extended sangha, hold ceremonies and experience the beauty of the Hudson Valley. Space is limited, so please sign up when you're able.You can register here.
Ordinary Mind Zendo is a non profit organization that depends entirely on the generosity of people like you for its continued existence. If sitting with us, listening to our talks, or supporting a Zen center in New York City is in line with your values, please consider making a donation here.
