This project analyzes the Brooklyn Zen Center as a case study in order to complexify our understandings of cultural capital, gentrification, the modern American mindfulness movement, and geographic scale. Through an analysis focused at the local scale, we see how the Brooklyn Zen Center both reflects/reproduces and challenges the socio-racial-economic tension associated with gentrification and the mindfulness movement. Through an analysis focused at the scale of the individual/interpersonal, we see how cultural capital both reflects/reproduces and challenges the socio-racial-economic tension associated with the mindfulness movement.
