Dharma Field welcomes everyone to the teachings and practice of Zen Buddhism. As Dharma Field founding teacher Steve Hagen reminds us, "Buddhism is about awareness. Not awareness of something in particular, but awareness itself—being awake, alert, in touch with what is actually happening. It's about examining and exploring the most basic questions of life. It's about relying on the immediate experience of this present moment. It's about freedom of mind." Dharma Field offers classes, talks, meditation instruction, and a quiet place to meditate with others.
