Finding our own truth in living this one human life.

The founding teacher of San Francisco Zen Center, Shunryu Suzuki Roshi, had a unique genius for presenting subtle and profound teachings in simple, accessible ways that continue to inspire generations of people on a path of practice. He often pointed to the most important thing to focus on in finding our own truth in living this one human life. In this retreat we will explore and deepen our study of the "original undivided Buddha Way" as Suzuki Roshi clarified it and encouraged our living it.
