About

Stone Creek Zen Center is a Buddhist practice center in the Soto Zen tradition. It is dedicated to the dharma teachings of awakening to reality and living compassionately in this impermanent, interdependent world. The core activity at the center is zazen – meditation  – wholehearted sitting here and now, being present in the fulness of reality.

Zen practice means waking up to your life in the universe in each particular moment. It is an investigation of how to live, with attention and care, together with all beings. Our sangha community extends their practice throughout each day, living consciously as part of the interconnected web of beings supporting each other’s lives.

While our zendo in Graton is being renovated, we are meeting most Sundays at the Graton Community Club for zazen and a Dharma talk. 

Zazen (meditation) is at 10:00am, followed by a Dharma talk at 10:30am. If you are not familiar with Zen forms, please contact us at info@stonecreekzen.org for an orientation.

You also can join on Sundays live on Zoom, or listen later once the Dharma talk is posted on YouTube.

We also offering daily zazen M-F through Zoom beginning at 7am, and livestreaming our Sunday morning program: zazen at 10am followed by a Dharma talk at 10:30am PST.

 Please contact us for the Zoom meeting room link.

Audio recordings of Dharma talks can be found here. 

Some earlier talks also are available on the Stone Creek YouTube channel.

May all beings be healthy and well!
