Bodhi Oak Zen Sangha

Bodhi Oak Zen Sangha is a group of people who practice meditation together, and who endeavor to take the peaceful mind of meditation into all our activities, finding an inner refuge of stability in a troubled world.

Meaning of Bodhi

“Bodhi” means “awake” or “enlightened.” It is said that the Buddha attained enlightenment under a Ficus tree, ever after called “The Bodhi Tree.”  Here in Oakhurst, this valley of oaks, we can ourselves awaken through meditation and mindfulness.

Zen Meditation

Zen meditation is a spiritual practice of quieting the mind and awakening fully to life. Based in the centuries-old teaching of Siddhartha Gautama, the Buddha, the Awakened One, meditation practice can be an opening to a deeply ethical and fulfilled life.
