“Branching Streams” is the name for Dharma centers and sanghas affiliated with San Francisco Zen Center in the lineage of Shunryu Suzuki Roshi. Branching Streams grew out of a recognition by San Francisco Zen Center that affiliated sanghas both wanted and would benefit from a closer connection to SFZC and each other.

Meetings of affiliates are held about every 18 months. These meetings reinforce our close connection to the Suzuki Roshi teaching lineage and to each other, and create energy, develop camaraderie, and provide opportunities for mutual friendship and support. Branching Streams has nearly 75 affiliate member sanghas in seven countries.

AZC Director Tim Kroll and Practice Leader Pat Yingst attended this year’s conference.
