Still Breathing Zen Sangha

Once a public center, we are now a small private sangha that meets in East Oakland, CA under the guidance of Zenju Earthlyn Manuel. We are Zen students of African descent studying the consciousness of internalized oppression and exploring identity in relationship to suffering and joy.  We do not have an open sitting schedule but offer open events from time to time throughout the Bay Area.

While members of the sangha can invite guests, Rev. Zenju is no longer able to accept new students at this time. She does accept Zen/Buddhist students for practice discussions by referral or by permission from her. Everyone is welcome to engage with her or receive practice discussions at public events and retreats .

Still Breathing welcomes Donations.

Thank you for your support.
