The Corporation maintains a center for Zen meditation and the study of Buddhism. The corporation seeks to express, make accessible, and embody the wisdom and compassion of the Buddha, guided by the teachings and lineage of the Soto School as conveyed to us by Shunryu Suzuki Roshi, our founder Issan Dorsey, and other Buddhist teachers. The Corporation acknowledges and values equally the expression of practice in formal settings and in daily life. The Corporation seeks to apply the tenets of Buddhism in ways that will enhance the lives of its members and members of San Francisco's L.G.B.T. community. All people are welcome.
