"What we are doing is not reprogramming ourselves, but freeing ourselves from all programs, by seeing that they are empty of reality."

Center's Description
Located in the San Gabriel Mountains 40 miles east of Los Angeles, the Mount Baldy Zen Center is a monastic style retreat center for Joshu Sasaki Roshi's Rinzai-Ji community. Most of his priests, monks and nuns have undergone extensive formal training here, and still attend summer and winter retreats.

Part of the Rinzai Zen lineage, MBZC enables ordained priests and lay students to train together in a formal, but rustic setting - designed to help us realize fundamental insights into our nature, and to manifest these insights in everyday life.

The Center was acquired in 1971 and has been refurbished over the years to accommodate students dedicated to rigorous Zen Buddhist training. The environment has been designed to challenge us to adapt to changing surroundings while maintaining the established schedule, protocol, and rituals.
