Located near the Civic Center in San Francisco, Beginner's Mind Temple (Hosshin-ji) was established in 1969 by Shunryu Suzuki Roshi as a training center in the Soto Zen tradition open to the general public. Offerings include daily meditation and service, semi-weekly dharma talks, classes, workshops, residential student programs, and opportunities to discuss one's spiritual practice with an experienced Zen practice leader.
