ZCF is established under the umbrella of Central Valley Zen Foundation, a non-profit organization. Myoan Grace Schireson and Kuzan Peter Schireson – Dharma heirs in the Suzuki roshi lineage – are ZCF’s co-founders. Members of Big Pond Zen Group and Fresno River Zen Group make up the ZCF community. Both groups met previously at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Fresno, a kind and generous host for many years. Going forward, all meetings will be at the new address.
