Bay Zen Center originated in 1985 as a group of students studying with Char­lotte Joko Beck. In 1994 Joko’s Dharma successor, Diane Eshin Rizzetto, became the Center’s teacher and abbot. Practice here is centered in the realization that true liberation rests in the heart of our

worldly activities. In this sense, our work at Bay Zen Center supports an ongoing awareness of life as it is in any moment, in any event, in any place. The center is open to beginners and experienced stu­dents and to people of all traditions. address: 5600A Snake Road, Oakland, CA 94611 phone: (510) 482-2533 FAX: (510) 482-9531 LINEAGE: Zen
