Welcome to City Center
Beginner's Mind Temple (Hosshin-ji), also known as City Center, was established in 1969 by Shunryu Suzuki Roshi as a training center in the Soto Zen tradition, open to the general public.

Offerings include daily meditation and service, semi-weekly dharma talks, classes, workshops, residential student programs, and the opportunity to discuss one's spiritual practice with an experienced Zen practice leader.

If you are new to Zen Center, we suggest you visit us on Saturday morning at 8:45 am for an introduction to Zen Center and meditation practice.

City Center is located at 300 Page Street in San Francisco. For general information about Beginner's Mind Temple, please click on "Read More."
