The simple, concentrated, and nourishing atmosphere of the Zen monastic setting is an ideal way to get away from one’s daily routine.
While the Zen residents follow a rigorous practice schedule, guests may spend their time as they wish. You can also use your retreat to get a taste for Zen practice without having to commit to the full schedule and simply enjoy your time in the mountains.
There is first-class hiking all around the center with trails starting right at the campus. The Sangre de Cristos are home to five 14ers, which are easily accessible from the campus.
You are welcome to participate in our daily meditation and attend weekly lectures or question and answer sessions. Guests may also request a personal interview with our resident teachers. The meditation hall and Buddhist library is open for you to use throughout the day.
