Crystal Springs Sangha is a weekly meditation group in the San Mateo area that practices in the Soto Zen tradition. Each Thursday evening, we meet to sit zazen and to discuss topics of everyday practice. All are welcome to join us.
Our practice is centered on zazen, the seated meditation practice central to the Soto Zen tradition. This is the practice that was handed down through generations of teachers and students in India, China, and Japan.
We meet weekly on Thursday evenings at 7:30 pm at College Heights Church in San Mateo. Our evenings begin with a half-hour of zazen, followed by five minutes of slow walking meditation and a brief chanting service. We then move to an adjacent room for discussion and refreshments, and the evening concludes at 9:00 pm.
Meet our teachers.
