Last month, the Urban Zen Center hosted a very special evening in the studio loft. An intimate gathering came together for a Fireside Chat to discuss Urban Zen and it’s signature program: the Urban Zen Integrative Therapy Program.
Although he wasn’t able to attend in person, Dr. David Feinberg, President of UCLA Health and Chief Executive Officer for the UCLA Hospital System, shared his sentiments on the UZIT program in a poignant and thoughtful video message. We are so proud and honored to have partnered with UCLA to continue the momentum propelling the UZIT program to the next level.
We would love for you to take a moment and check out what Dr. David Feinberg’s thoughts on the Urban Zen Integrative Therapy Program.Read More...

We are delighted to take a moment and honor two core members of the Urban Zen Integrative Therapy faculty team: Robert Chodo Campbell and Koshin Paley Ellison, founders of the New York Zen Center for Contemplative Care. These two inspired individuals have done so much to support us here at Urban Zen (see their recent prayer for Boston here), and we’re thrilled to celebrate them in any way we can.
We were reminded of their beautiful gifts and necessary work at the 3rd Annual Contemplative Care Awards, which took place at the Rubin Museum last night. The evening celebrates extraordinary talent within the contemplative care field, an arena that is often overlooked but so essential to the integrative healthcare process.
The New York Zen Center for Contemplative Care has championed the importance of this message in a profound way. It is the first Buddhist organization to offer fully accredited chaplaincy training in America and the organization delivers contemplative approaches to care through education, direct service and meditation practice. Robert and Koshin have been a key component of the UZIT curriculum and training and we continue to be filled with gratitude for what they bring to our wellbeing commitment and our efforts to shift the healthcare paradigm. We couldn’t do it without them.Read More...

This week, our Founder Donna Karan is off to Haiti. Among many exciting events and happenings, Donna will be participating in the Annual Women, Creation and Production Trade show, which is organized by “Voix Essencielle” -Femmes en Democratie, a Haitian nonprofit organization. This international trade show promotes Haiti’s creativity by offering a platform for Haitian women entrepreneurs and artisans to showcase their talents and stunning artistry. The experience brings together a community inspired by innovative, handmade, fair trade products.
