The physical New York Zendo is closed until after labor day.
Daily and Saturday sitting on Zoom remains the same, all periods are covered there.
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 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 email@example.com for more information.
