Center activities
Where we are

The Centro Zen L'Arco - Zenmon Ji (Zen gate Temple) - is a Non Profit Association affiliated with the San Francisco Zen Center founded by Shunryu Suzuki Roshi (author of the famous book Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind), and associated with the European Buddhist Union.

The core of our activity is sitting meditation or zazen. Besides zazen, we also practise walking meditation or kinhin and the chanting of traditional texts or sutras.

We also study the doctrine itself as well as Buddhist philosophy in general and several practices traditionally related to Zen, such as the Tea Ceremony, the Meal Ceremony and the sewing of the Buddha's robe.

We also organize retreats or sesshin, of one or more days, both in town and in the countryside.

The Centro Zen L'Arco is open to people of every age, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, nationality and physical ability.
