Twining Vines offers an opportunity to meditate together once a week in the Zen style taught by Shunryu Suzuki Roshi and practiced at San Francisco Zen Center.
Our teacher is Renshin Bunce. Ren was ordained by Zenkei Blanche Hartman in 2003 and received Dharma Transmission from Myogen Steve Stucky in 2013.
Please note: as of January, 2014, Twining Vines is on hiatus while we look for a new meeting place. Please send email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to be notified when regular sittings resume. Thank you.
We meet each Tuesday night at 7:30. We meditate together and then read and talk about a Zen text. We're currently reading Zen Mind Beginners Mind, the immortal collection of talks given by Shunryu Suzuki Roshi.
If you’re new to meditation, instruction is available on request.
Teachings are always offered free of charge. Donations to help make the rent are appreciated.
