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.

The Buddha said a key part of the dharma path is found in our practice community, our sangha. We see this in monasteries across Asia, where people who practice together, live and work together. And yet as the dharma has come to the west - so often we come to a sit, hear the dharma talk and then jet. This monthly gathering gives us an opportunity to connect to those who we sit with through a series of experiential activities…

A Four Week Class Series with Eve Ekman. Our emotions can lead us to our greatest joys and most painful sorrows. In their most creative capacity, they are guides pointing us towards who we truly are and what is most meaningful in our lives. At their most destructive, we are caught by them: lost in the grip of anger, sadness, fear, or overwhelm. This suffering is something we have all felt, but we can create more space, choice, and ease in the face of it. The…

Since the time of the Buddha, women have been walking the path, committed to waking up. While their voices have not always been placed front and center, an unbroken thread– the sacred feminine– has woven itself into all corners of the Dharma since the first Buddhist nun, Maha Pajapati, firmly requested ordination from the Buddha. Join us for a monthly women’s sangha where we can share our practice, celebrate our feminine lineage, and create a space for inquiry, support, and…

A Daylong Retreat with Eve Ekman We wouldn’t want a life without the pull of our emotions—whether we are experiencing love and joy or grief and sadness, our emotions help us navigate our lives, discern what we need, and relate to others. Yet, overwhelming emotions can leave us feeling triggered, drained, and unable to engage in the fullness of life. When the pull of our emotions becomes too strong, we get caught in reactivity when what we truly long for…

The holidays can be a tough time of year. Either we are in a place where we don't have family to be with or the opposite, too much family! This potluck is a great opportunity to hang with groovy people at the center to break bread, chat, groove to tunes and maybe even play some poker or board games. If you need a place to chill on xmas, join us!

Since the time of the Buddha, women have been walking the path, committed to waking up.
