What David enjoyed most about being Abiding Abbot of SFZC’s urban temple was taking care of the day-to-day Zen ceremonial practice and teaching.
“Working closely with SFZC for all these years was my practice ... People were so thoughtful in their interactions and had a presence that I valued.”
“It calls on my utmost sincerity and vulnerability in order to do something together. That’s the only way for Zen practice to be meaningful."
As SFZC prepares for the transition of its abbatial seats, we are pleased to invite the sangha to participate in ceremonies over March 10 - 12.
Ben's new book makes accessible Yogacara teachings that can enable us to heal and transform systems of harm within ourselves and our communities.
A portion of Gary McNabb’s ashes remain at Green Gulch Farm at a place of reverence for lineage holders.
A long-term practitioner of Soto Zen Buddhism, she received her vows through SFZC and was given the name Zan Do Sho On / Mountain Way, True Voice.
Mako hopes to work with the community of practitioners to reinvigorate urban practice, with respect and kindness towards every person.
We confirm our commitment to establishing and supporting a community free from hate and the threat of violence.
Congratulations to the initiates who received the precepts in a Jukai Ceremony at SFZC’s City Center on January 21.
