Berkeley Zen Center invites younger practitioners and beginners to join us in open discussion groups about Zen Buddhism, meditation, and developing a personal practice. Our aim is to cultivate “Kalyana Mitta,” spiritual friendship, to provide members with the opportunity to meet others in their age group and similar situations to support each other in bringing Zen practice more fully into our daily lives. This group was formerly known as the 20s-30s group but we have expanded the age range to be more inclusive.

In 2021 we will meet on the 1st Monday of the month and the 3rd Thursday of the month for casual check-ins about practice and how it plays a role in our lives. On the 4th Sunday of the month we will have a facilitated discussion with a longtime practitioner on selected koans from The Hidden Lamp .

All YEBZ events are held on Zoom in the Dharma Groups Link.  (password: bzc)

Young East Bay Zen strives to foster a climate of purposeful inclusion of all people. We value the diversity of racial and cultural identity and background, nationality, sexual and affectional orientation, gender identity and its expression, religious background and belief, marital status, mental and physical health and ability, political perspective, and educational and class status.
