The Hazy Moon Zen Center is a Soto Zen center in Los Angeles, California.


Hazy Moon Zen Center was founded in 1996 by William Nyogen Yeo Roshi[1] through the honorary founder Taizan Maezumi Roshi.[2] Nyogen Roshi practiced 27 years with Maezumi Roshi and was the last of the successors in the Maezumi Roshi Lineage.[1]

As an active Zen temple, the Hazy Moon offers daily zazen practice[3] that allows the public to practice with the temple monks, and Dharma talks are given by Nyogen Roshi on a weekly basis.[3] As with most Zen temples, intensive retreats (sesshin) and regular classes that aid practitioners in strengthening their Zen practice are offered throughout the year.[4]
