In January 2024, San Francisco Zen Center will embark on a large, much needed renovation project at 300 Page Street (City Center). We are very excited and grateful to finally take the steps necessary to care for this precious 100-year-old building. The project includes, among many things, a new Welcome Center, complete bathroom restorations, and adding a new ramp and elevator for broader accessibility.
300 Page Street will be closed for renovation beginning in 2024; however, the zendo will remain open so that zazen, Dharma talks, classes, and workshops can continue. Practice/affinity groups will also continue to meet. The aim is to maintain the continuity of our Dharma offerings throughout the renovation year, both in person and online.
Please consider supporting this project by making a donation to the Beginner's Mind Temple Renovation Fund. We are seeking to raise $125,000 to cover unexpected costs and to help with income shortfalls experienced during this time. Your donation will ensure City Center will remain relevant and accessible to all for generations to come.
