Founded by Rev. Issan Dorsey in a Victorian house in the Castro district, Hartford Street Zen Center is the organization responsible for Issan-ji (One Mountain Temple), a neighborhood temple and residential practice center in the Soto Zen tradition of Shunryu Suzuki-roshi. The center was also the site of the Maitri AIDS Hospice in the 1990’s.Currently, the center can accommodate five residents; we also are home to a cat. We host morning and evening Zazen (meditation) sessions as well as Saturday speakers, monthly one-day sittings, and a variety of community events.
