To study the Buddha way is to study the self.
To study the self is to forget the self.
To forget the self is to be enlightened by all things.

Youth Outreach Program

The Sweetwater Zen Center is developing youth outreach programs in the South Bay area of San Diego. We are bringing meditation, council practice and art projects to local youth groups helping at risk teens, teen pregnancy programs and gang intervention, just to name a few.

Here are just a few quotes from some of the at risk youths we have worked with so far:

“I actually spoke up and got my feelings out even though it was hard I did it”

“ …today I felt like I could really open up and share how I really felt…seriously, it could not have been better”

“It helped to share my feelings out loud with different people and also hear other people’s problems and feelings. I don’t feel so alone”
