From our community:

"I have practiced Zen for many years and found the people at San Mateo Zen to be friendly and welcoming. Discussions of koans were inspiring. Thanks for a lovely time."  ~ Polly C 

"The San Mateo Zen Community is a comfortable place to practice, open and supportive. Zen Roshi Jon Joseph is kind, understanding; he teaches immediacy."  ~ Jeff S

"Thank you for this blog post JJ, I really love your teaching!  "Laughter at the utter ridiculousness of worrying that even one thing in all the universe was out of place." Yes, perfect! So good to be with you last weekend.  ~ Ellen F
