Santa Monica

Against the Stream Buddhist Meditation Society

In Santa Monica, we are located at 1001a Colorado Avenue, between 10th and 11th (click here for map).  The entrance is in the alley behind the brick wall. We share the building with another organization who are on the corner of 10th and Colorado. Please don’t bother them as there is no access from there.   This is the location formerly used by the Santa Monica Zen Center so there is a long tradition of Buddhist practice here.

Getting to the Center

There are some meters on Colorado and on Broadway (free Sunday) and free parking along the side streets. Please be careful parking on the side streets and make sure you read all posted signs. There are some restrictions on the residential streets. The Metro Expo Line runs down Colorado and we are about 5-6 blocks equidistant from two different stops.

DO NOT PARK in the alley by the entrance; your car WILL BE TOWED. We do not have any spaces available in the alley so you should not park there. Our neighbors have been very patient with us, but this is a practice of not taking what is not freely given. No spaces have been freely given. Thank you!
