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 24. Please contact us to register for this event 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.

On September 2 of this year, we held our ‘Fun-raising Gala’ to help support the Center’s upcoming projects. Due to the generosity of all the attendees, volunteers, and donors, we were able raise more than $100,000. Please watch the video below showcasing this wonderful event and the people who made it possible:
