With gentleness, overcome anger. With generosity, overcome meanness. With truth, overcome delusion.”
—The Buddha, The Dhammapada, Verse 223

We are honored to announce that Jokai Blackwell Sensei will lead Long Beach Meditation as our Guiding Teacher beginning July 2018.

Jokai’s experienced leadership will help guide the vision of our growing Sangha. Long Beach Meditation will soon begin offering the following:

  • A six-week beginners class
  • More full-moon sits
  • An all-day retreat
  • An eight-week mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) program
  • One-on-one meditation guidance at LBM specially for Sustaining Members
  • Classes covering different topics offered each first and third Saturday


Our deepest gratitude to The Frederick P. Lenz Foundation for American Buddhism, which has awarded Long Beach Meditation a $5,000 grant to help sustain our programs and diverse initiatives.

The Frederick P. Lenz Foundation is committed to supporting organizations that foster the growth and development of an authentic American Buddhism like that which is taking shape at Long Beach Meditation.

Now is a perfect time to join us in our fundraising goal to match the generosity of The Frederick P. Lenz Foundation for American Buddhism’s $5,000 grant. We are making a positive impact in our community by teaching, supporting, and creating a space for mindfulness practice.

Please click on the donate button now to help us reach our $5,000 matching goal. 100% of your contribution will go directly towards supporting our teachers and programs.

Thank you, from your friends at Long Beach Meditation!
