Temple stay Sonoma Mountain Zen Center

Friday April 26th -

April 26-27

Temple stay is an opportunity to experience authentic Soto Zen Buddhism, its lifestyle, rituals and spirituality. Take the backward step, sit down and illuminate the jewel within yourself. A stay at the center is a unique retreat into a spiritual sanctuary surrounded by natural beauty. This rural setting is filled with redwood forests, oak groves, and sweeping vistas. During your stay, you can join in the meditation periods, services, and communal meals of daily temple life, or spend time alone reading, writing, or hiking. In addition to walking trails on the grounds, North Slope Regional Park and Jack London State Park are a close driving distance from the center. Fee for one night and two days is $85 for one person. If two participants are making a reservation and using one room, fee is $70 per person. To register, email office@smzc.org, or call 545-8105.

The Sonoma Mountain Zen Center is located at 6367 Sonoma Mountain Road.
