Branching Streams
Visit the new Branching Streams website at http://branchingstreams.sfzc.org.

Branching Streams is a network of Dharma centers in the tradition of Suzuki Roshi. Our intention is to encourage the practice of Soto Zen in inclusive and creative ways in centers large and small. The members of the group will stay in touch with each other and learn from each other’s experience. Branching Streams exists to explore our interconnectedness, to nourish each other’s practice, and to find new ways to benefit each other.

Here is a current listing of the Branching Streams sanghas.
