The Wind-in-Grass Sangha is a Pacific Zen Institute Zen community coming together in Potrero Hill every Wednesday to practice together and thereby enjoy the benefit of each others’ guidance, strength, sincerity and dedication.
We offer instructions in meditation that reveal a freedom around our suffering, encouragement and support in taking the next step, or fall, in deepening your practice (and next), help in expanding that awareness to include more and more of our daily lives and the opportunity to participate in charitable acts that make SF a kinder and more beautiful place. We welcome everyone, without exception, and regardless of your level of experience or interest.
Regular meetings every Wednesday, 7 – 8:30pm
- 1st Wednesday: Senior Dharma student Chris Wilson leads the group in an intimate koan discussion.
- 2nd Wednesday: Practice leader Michael Kallus referees the group in a Zen Game.
- 3rd Wednesday: Zen Teacher David Weinstein teaches the group.
- 4th Wednesday: Community night and Zen Game. Bring your curious friends, significant others, children, etc. There will be an in depth beginning instruction, an intentionally unstructured Zen Game to play, tea and food, and after practice, we go to Blooms or Farley’s together for a drink of some sort.
- 5th Wednesday: We play another Zen Game.
