New Member Information

Deep gratitude.

Thank you for being a member of San Francisco Zen Center and for your active engagement with our global sangha. Membership contributions provide a steady foundation from which San Francisco Zen Center reaches out to all beings, as we have for over five decades.
These contributions support the day-to-day expenses of our three temples where over 100 residents study and practice the dharma, serve our local communities, offer nutritious meals daily, and host thousands of visitors each year. Because of  you, our teachers are able to offer public lectures twice weekly in each temple, and San Francisco Zen Center is able to make all lectures available online, ensuring that the dharma is accessible to all beings.

Membership is supported by community and grounded in practice. Please have a look at the other resources that are available to you by exploring the links on this page.

And let us know if you have any questions by emailing or calling 415-354-0355.

With gratitude,

Myles Cowherd
