We welcome you to create your personal retreat (or group retreat) in the simple, concentrated, and nourishing atmosphere of our monastic Zen Practice Center. We are open for individual guests from May through early January. Use the image slider below to learn about possibilities for your personal retreat. You will be welcomed and taken care of by an active community of monastic Zen practitioners. But don’t worry! While the Zen residents follow a rigorous practice schedule, as a guest, you may spend your time as you wish. Let us help you with creating your own personal retreat. Choose from day to day whether you want to join us for all or part of the meditation schedule. Ask for instructions on meditation and mindfulness practice. If you would like to create a silent retreat, please let us know. Upon request, we will prepare a tray for you, if you prefer to eat in your private quarters. You can also check out books from the library to take back to your room. We will also support your hiking adventures or trips in the valley with bag lunches.
