    We are delighted to announce that the LA weekly meditation group will resume meeting on the West Side on Sunday 15th January 2012. Thanks to the efforts of one of Dzogchen Center Southern California's long-time supporters, the LA group has a new home at the Village Church in Westwood every Sunday evening from 7pm to 9pm.

    This location is extremely convenient for the entire West Side, just off the 405 Freeway near the Montana Avenue exit (if coming from the South) or Sunset Boulevard exit (if coming from the North). It is less than a mile from UCLA, and no more than 10 or 15 minutes from Santa Monica.

    Meetings will be listed in the Events section of this site.
