Green Gulch Zen Center
June 7th (Sunday) 8:00am – 3:00pm
This day trip will be an excursion to the beautiful Green Gulch Farm Zen Center, which is one of three campuses of the San Francisco Zen Center. Special chartered buses will take participants to and from the meditation center-farm, located in the Golden Gate National Recreation Center, in spectacular Marin county, across the Golden Gate Bridge.
The Green Gulch Farm Zen Center, also known as Green Dragon Temple (Soryu-ji), is a Buddhist practice center in the Japanese Soto Zen tradition offering training in Zen meditation and ordinary work. Participants may attend a Dharma talk and discussion, visit the farmers market, partake in an organic vegetarian lunch, tour the organic garden and grounds, walk to the ocean, or hike in the hills to see the spectacular view. Since weather is variable, attendees are encouraged to dress in layers.
