About CityZen

Rachel Mansfield-Howlett Roshi

CityZen is a western style Zen practice and koan center in the Pacific Zen School  led by Rachel Mansfield-Howlett Roshi. 

Our practice includes the ancient Mahayana Buddhist traditions, the Bodhisattva Path, and the wisdom embodied in western thought, art, and music. 

Contemplative practices of walking, meditation, silence, introspection, koan work, and meetings with the teachers are held in a practice container which emphasizes respect for each other and all beings, truthfullness, transparency, accountability, and science.

We welcome everyone into our meditation halls.
