Our New Retreat CenterOver the past 30 years, our retreat programs at Tassajara have flourished, allowing participants to deeply reconnect with themselves, those around them, and the surrounding natural environment. This summer, for the first time, retreat participants will have a dedicated space to support the study of body and mind in our new retreat center. This center unites the need for a
serene place of enrichment and self-exploration with our commitment to environmental sustainability and stewardship.
Using green materials and thermodynamics, this new, energy-efficient facility will have a lasting impact on our ability to offer you programs of the highest quality. It is thanks to the support of generous donors that we were able to begin construction on the retreat center in October of 2010. However, we have yet to raise the final amount needed to complete this important offering to our community.
Solar Panel ExpansionFor more than forty years, San Francisco Zen Center has been exploring ways to fulfill its intention of living lightly on the Earth. Recently, Zen Center undertook a project which expanded its existing solar panel arrays. Now, all of Tassajara’s electricity is produced by the sun.
Support the New Retreat Center and Solar EnergyWe invite you to consider making a gift to allow us to complete construction of the retreat center and to fund the new solar panel array. Your contribution will benefit all who deepen their practice in this space now and for years to come. For more information, please contact Anne-Marie Rosché at 415-268-0296 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for supporting San Francisco Zen Center’s efforts to maintain Tassajara in a responsible, sustainable way that emphasizes walking gently on the earth for generations to come.
