Welcome to Zen Heart Sangha. Our sangha (community)
has been practicing meditation together since 1993 in the
tradition of Shunryu Suzuki Roshi, the founder of San
Francisco Zen Center. Zen Heart Sangha (ZHS) is a non-
residential community with practice places in both Menlo
Park and Woodside, California, with affiliated students in the
Sacramento area and New York.
ZHS is dedicated to the study and practice of Zen Buddhism
for lay practitioners. We offer a wide range of practice
opportunities including weekly meditation, lectures on
Buddhist teachings, classes, group discussions, and
meditation retreats throughout the year.
We are also committed to the development of sangha and
spiritual friendship. Sangha is the Buddhist word for the
community of individuals who practice the Buddha’s way of
meditation and mindfulness, and spiritual friendship is how
we mutually support each other on this path. Please join us
for meditation and enjoy the ‘best season of your life’!
