Deep Streams Zen Institute offers authentic Zen practice in Santa Barbara with Joseph Bobrow Roshi. We also provided continuing education for health practitioners and served the community through Coming Home Project's integrative programs for veterans and their families and caregivers. Join us as we practice, study, and build peace.
