Against the Stream Buddhist Meditation Society

We’re so honored to be able to welcome you to our sangha’s new home at 2701 Folsom Street (at the corner of 23rd and Folsom streets), in San Francisco. We’re so enjoying watching the new center blossom, and we hope you’ll join us there soon. Stop by a weekly class, become a supporter, volunteer, or join us for a daylong or half-day retreat. We can’t wait to see you there!

Getting to the Center:

Our center at 2701 Folsom Street is located in the heart of San Francisco’s Mission District, just three blocks from the 24th St./Mission BART station, and many major bus lines. Street parking is available throughout the neighborhood, however, as this is a densely populated area, we encourage visitors to carpool whenever possible. For those who wish to avoid street parking, there is a city-owned garage located within a ten minute walk at 3255 21st Street.
