SF Zen Center

Community Center


  • Directions




The San Francisco Zen Center is one of the largest residential training Soto Zen Buddhist organizations outside of Asia. It was established in 1962 by Suzuki Roshi, best known to countless readers as the author of the modern spiritual classic, "Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind". The purpose of Zen Center is to express, make accessible, and embody the wisdom and compassion of the Buddha.

The Zen Center is a practice place for a diverse population of students, visitors, lay people, priests, and monks guided by teachers who follow in Suzuki Roshi's style of warm hand and heart to warm hand and heart. All are welcome.

Zen Center programs also reach out to the community, helping prisoners, the homeless, and those in recovery; protecting the environment; and working for peace.
