Dear Friends:  In 2014, our Soto Zen practice moved to Albuquerque’s North Valley!  Please join us at Valley Dragon Zen Sangha every Monday night at 6:30pm for zazen, service, and discussion.  We meet at Dragonfly Yoga, 1301 Rio Grande Blvd NW #2, Albuquerque, NM 87104.  Visit our web site here.

Desert Mirror Zendo and Guesthouse is no longer active, but the web site is maintained for archival purposes.  Please join us for zazen at Valley Dragon Zen Sangha, described above.

Desert Mirror Zendo & Guest House is a small Soto Zen Buddhist meditation hall and spiritual retreat cottage located in the central Nob Hill neighborhood of Albuquerque, New Mexico. A weekly schedule of Zen meditation practice is offered in the Soto Zen tradition of Shunryu Suzuki-Roshi, founder of San Francisco Zen Center.

Desert Mirror is a relatively informal, lay community zendo whose practice is appropriate for all levels of meditators, from first-time beginners through very experienced practitioners.  Meditation instruction is available the first Monday of each month at 5:45 p.m., or by appointment.


Sitting at Desert Mirror

Please be seated and settled in the zendo at least 5 minutes before the posted starting time for zazen.  We have plenty of cushions, chairs and seiza (kneeling) benches, so you don’t need to bring anything unless you have very special sitting needs.

Occasional teacher visits, half-day retreats, and other special events (such as movie nights, potlucks, Sangha Day work practice, etc.) are scheduled about once a month and promoted via our email list.
