Dharma Field welcomes everyone to the teachings and practice of Zen Buddhism. The center, founded in 1997 by Steve Hagen, offers meditation instruction, a daily meditation schedule, and sesshins (retreats). We also offer classes in Buddhism and Zen as well as related subjects. Join us, in person or online, in the study and practice of this rich tradition, which is no less relevant today as it was in its beginnings in India over 2500 years ago.
