Welcome to Mill Valley Zen, open to anyone wanting to learn to

study Zen, to investigate the question of what it means to be a human being in these challenging and amazing times. I meet lots of people who want to have a regular meditation practice and find it difficult to maintain a
regular practice in the midst of their busy lives. This group was formed to
meet that need, as well as for those who want to refresh or deepen their
My definition of Zen these days is that it is the practice of developing a
responsive and flexible mind while keeping your heart open. Zen practice is also a way of not being caught by our stories but instead to embrace and understand our stories and the paradoxical nature of being alive.
