Beginner’s Mind Zen Center is a neighborhood zendo in a quiet residential area near California State University at Northridge. It offers lay practitioners and interested individuals a daily program of meditation in the Soto Zen Buddhist tradition as transmitted by Shunryu Suzuki-roshi.
The name comes from the Zen Buddhist term “beginner’s mind,” which describes an openness, eagerness and lack of preconception in living one’s life.

All are welcome to practice zen meditation at Beginner’s Mind. No membership is required to participate.
