The Berkeley Zen Center is a place where women and men practice zazen together daily, with the support of the Zen Center community, under the guidance of abbot Sojun Mel Weitsman Roshi.
Meditation, which is called zazen, or sitting in stillness, is the center of our practice, following and adapting the traditions of Soto Zen Buddhism.  At BZC our everyday activity, as it extends from zazen, is the field where practice finds its full expression.
