San Francisco Zen Center is one of the largest Buddhist sanghas outside Asia. It has three practice places: City Center, in the vibrant heart of San Francisco; Green Gulch Farm, whose organic fields meet the ocean in Marin County; and Tassajara Zen Mountain Center—the first Zen training monastery in the West—in the Ventana Wilderness inland from Big Sur.
These three complementary practice centers offer daily meditation, regular monastic retreats and practice periods, classes, lectures, and workshops.
The mission of Zen Center is to make accessible and embody the wisdom and compassion of the Buddha. Zen Center is a practice place for a diverse population of students, visitors, lay people, priests, and monks guided by teachers who follow in Shunryu Suzuki Roshi’s style of warm hand and heart to warm hand and heart. All are welcome.
