Zen Practice Continuing Education Peace Building

Welcome to Deep Streams

Deep Streams Zen Institute offers authentic Zen practice with Joseph Bobrow Roshi. We also provide continuing education for the enrichment and well-being of mental health practitioners, drawing on mindfulness, Buddhism and Western psychology. We serve and create community through Coming Home Project's integrative programs for veterans and their families that integrate psychological, mindfulness and expressive approaches as they build a welcoming community. Deep Streams invites you to join us as we practice, study, and build peace — and share the fruits for the benefit of all beings.
