Zen Center of New York City: Fire Lotus Temple is a refuge for spiritual practitioners in New York City. With a regular schedule of morning and evening zazen, Saturday workshops and meditation intensives, a Sunday Morning Program, and residential opportunities, you’ll find support and inspiration for practicing at home and at work in one of the most dynamic cities in the world.
We have waived the pre-registration requirement for weekday zazen at Fire Lotus Temple. If you have had beginning instruction in zazen at the Temple or Monastery and you are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, you are welcome to join us for any of the regularly scheduled weekday zazen sessions without making any prior arrangements. Please note that pre-registration is still required for Saturday retreats and the regular Sunday program. Please also note that our mask requirement is still in effect, in compliance with CDC guidelines. If you are experiencing cold- or flu-like symptoms, please wait until you feel better before joining us.
