Still Breathing Zen Sangha is no longer a physical location and there are no regular weekly sits. Still Breathing is a private sangha at this time with Zenju’s current students who are of African descent. She is not accepting new students at this time. However she does lead Dharma events for everyone, including POC events and black African descent who are not in Still Breathing. Keep updated by signing up for the newsletter on the home page of this website.
Zenju Earthlyn Manuel will be limiting her appearances to one to two major events a year. She may travel with an assistant/student so please consider this in your budget.
Her current focus is writing, her own contemplative practice, and discovering more intimate ways of teaching. She invites you and your sangha or community to access information about Sensei’s creative and heartfelt offerings through her website zenju.org. She teaches freely on Facebook. Subscribe to the newsletter to keep informed with updates.
While upholding her Dharma Transmission as a teacher in the Suzuki Roshi lineage, Sensei is currently not in residence at San Francisco Zen Center and does not offer general practice discussions for SFZC students or those seeking to be students at SFZC.
In addition, she is currently not inviting new students in the traditional Zen student/teacher relationship. If your heart moves you to contact us anyway please do.
Finally, she is not available to give general counsel on life decisions or answer questions on Zen/Buddhist practice via email, or advice on developing manuscripts.
