Young Urban Zen

Update: July 2022

Young Urban Zen (YUZ) has returned to the Buddha Hall at City Center, meeting weekly in person.

  • For Covid safety, all attendees must be masked (KN95 or N95) and fully vaccinated (as well as boosted if eligible). Attendees may not visit the temple if they have cold or flu symptoms, if they have been in close contact with anyone diagnosed with Covid (within 14 days), or if they have tested positive for Covid within the last 10 days. To return to the temple after a positive Covid infection, it must be at least 10 days since testing positive and the attendee must have a negative antigen test.

Young Urban Zen Discussion GroupYoung Urban Zen (YUZ) is a group under the auspices of the San Francisco Zen Center, with a particular focus on those between 20 and 40. It meets on Tuesday evenings for meditation and discussion about Zen practice. People of all experience levels are welcome. Those who have not meditated before may find it helpful to view videos of meditation instruction in SF Zen Center's archive of recorded instructions.

Beyond Tuesday nights, members of the group regularly meet for social activities, volunteering, book club study, outings, and occasional retreats.

Young Urban Zen offers an opportunity to build meaningful community with people who care about practice and mindfulness.
