DHARMA EYE ZEN We have been meditating and studying the dharma together for over twenty years. Dharma Eye was founded by Myogen Steve Stücky, former Central Abbot of San Francisco Zen Center. Our evenings have a blend of zazen meditation, service dedicated to well-being, informal tea and visiting, and a dharma talk offering with free-flowing discussion. Please join us whenever you like. Our intention is to practice mindfulness and loving-kindness with our families, places of work, relationships and ourselves.
We are affiliated with the Suzuki Roshi lineage of Zen and a wide range of practice sanghas including Green Gulch Farm and San Francisco Zen Center. We offer meditation and support sangha within Zen Buddhist teachings.
