Open Wide the Dharma Gate

Renovation Campaign

The sanctuary is built!

Three years ago, Stone Creek purchased the building we had been renting in Graton, CA for many years, the sangha and supporters having worked hard to raise the needed funds. This first phase was a pivotal achievement in creating a dedicated home for the Stone Creek Sangha.

Completing the vision

It’s now time to carry the vision forward. We are raising funds for the second and final phase of the project. We need to take care of needed improvements and deferred maintenance on the building, to renovate and expand the zendo and community rooms to accommodate our growing sangha, and to landscape and create gardens that will reflect and support our Zen practice and serve as a refuge for members and the neighboring community.

Into the future

We crafted the renovation plans with the next ten to twenty years in mind.  Completing this project will establish a legacy: a center devoted to the Buddha Dharma and Zen practice for current members, for people seeking Dharma practice in the wider community, and for generations to come.
