Branching Streams



Branching Streams is the outreach 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.


Branching Streams Affiliation

Branching Streams consists of nearly 80 member sanghas and Dharma centers in 7 countries. Karuna Buddhist Sangha has been affiliated since early 2017.
