These drop-in classes explore meditation and modern Buddhist practices for improving our happiness, relationships, and ability to transform problems into opportunities. Michele began her Dharma studies in Toronto in 1997, and has been studying at KMC San Francisco for the last 18 years. All schools of Buddhism agree that the practice of Guru Yoga, or relying upon a Spiritual Guide, is the root of the spiritual path and the foundation of all spiritual attainments. Gen Kelsang Choma is senior Teacher and Buddhist nun with the New Kadampa Tradition of Modern Buddhism; she has studied extensively on the Teacher Training Program for 25 years and is qualified to teach both Sutra and Tantra.
Read on for the story of our Buddhist temple stay, and how these guest rooms are a hidden travel gem. In 1959, Shunryu Suzuki Roshi arrived from Japan to be the head of the Soto Zen temple in San Francisco. Plus, we felt great about supporting the Zen Center, and taking part in the Buddhist practice.

One of the foundations of Zen Buddhism is to live in the moment — something that people often forget, leading to stress and unhappiness.
The classes are suitable for everyone and consist of guided meditations, teaching and discussion. On this course, we look at how to have confidence in a Spiritual Guide and why having a Teacher or Spiritual Guide is central to our spiritual progress.
She is the Resident Teacher at Kadampa Meditation Center San Francisco and is invited to teach nationally.  People enjoy her teachings for their clarity and warmth.
The front hall is decorated with sparse but graceful elements, like this meditating Buddha.
The door leads to the meditation hall, where all are welcome to take off their shoes and enter.
The Zen Center offers lovely guest rooms for $105-$162 a night, which includes a healthy breakfast with the residents, and lunch and dinner by donation.

The Guru Yoga practice of Je Tsongkhapa called Offering to the Spiritual Guide will be explained with teachings from Great Treasury of Merit and the International Teacher Training Program.
As a result, the Zen Center became a gathering spot for creatives in the Beat and hippie movements. The SFZC also has locations in Tassajara and Green Gulch, for more isolated retreats and intensive practice.
These accommodations aren’t listed in any hotel sites, and are an incredible value considering the location and experiences offered. I hope you’ll also get the chance to visit, take a class, or rent a guestroom in this Buddhist monastery.
