San Francisco Zen Center programs
offered at ZaZEN Filbert Street
In Zen Buddhism, zazen is a meditative discipline practitioners perform to calm the body and the mind, and be able to concentrate enough to experience insight into the nature of existence. Zazen is considered the heart of Zen Buddhist practice.
At Zazen we offer a range of practices each of which is a way of cultivating calm centeredness, spaciousness, and embodied meditative presence. Our practices are a way of stopping, breaking from habitual conditioning and interpretations of the world, opening up space for a free, joyful, affirmative relation to the world as it is.
