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. 

Weekly Zen practice at St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Ventura. Saturdays from 9:30-11:30 in the Gooden Center, 3290 Loma Vista Rd. Please arrive by 9:20 to get settled. If you're beginning, email or call to request an orientation: Marliyn Owen, mowen@gmail.com, 909-732-9037.
