The Bodhi Manda Zen Center is a Buddhist retreat center located in the Jemez mountains of New Mexico, near Albuquerque and Santa Fe. It offers a peaceful and compassionate environment ideal for workshops, seminars, and meditation intensives. While its orientation is chiefly Buddhist, the BMZC’s mission is to provide a setting that supports spiritual growth for all committed seekers.

Once a month Bodhi Manda Zen Center hosts a meditation retreat called the Zazenkai. It is a weekend long meditation retreat and less intense than our Sesshins. Our next Zazenkai is coming up on Friday, September 22, to Sunday, September 24th. Please contact us to register for this event, let us know you wish to join us that weekend, or if you have any questions pertaining to the Zazenkai.

In 2017, the Center is undertaking a fundraising campaign to improve and expand its facilities and programs. You can catch up with other updates about the Center in our news section.
