Leadership Team

Our collaboration. 


Enso Village represents a creative collaboration between two exemplary not-for-profit organizations, the San Francisco Zen Center and Kendal Corporation.

Established in 1962, the San Francisco Zen Center is one of the largest residential training Soto Zen Buddhist organizations outside of Asia. It has three practice places which offer daily meditation, regular monastic retreats and practice periods, classes, lectures and workshops throughout the Bay Area. All are welcome.

Since 1971, Kendal Corporation has been a leading not-for-profit provider of communities, programs and services that advocates for and empowers older adults to achieve their full potential. Today Kendal operates more than a dozen Life Plan Communities in eight states and was among the first organization to offer a “Lifecare At Home” Program which offers all the benefits of a Life plan Community to individuals living in their own home.  The program started in Cleveland Ohio and hopes to expand to California in the future . As a system of not-for-profit senior living communities, programs and services founded on the principles of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers), Kendal aspires to transform the experience of aging.
