Visits & Stays
San Francisco Zen Center offers seven charming guest rooms for short-term stays at the corner of Page and Laguna.
The City Center Resident Training Program is designed to support Zen students to sit
zazen, practice intimately with each other and with the bodhisattva precepts, and gain a thorough
understanding of what it is to take refuge in Buddha, Dharma and Sangha.
Guest Student Stays
Our Guest Student Program offers short-term residency (two to six weeks) to those interested in beginning or continuing Zen practice with the support of a community. Guest students participate in the daily life of City Center, which includes zazen (sitting meditation), services (sutra chanting), work (frequently of a physical nature), and meals.
