Sonoma Mountain Zen Center is the perfect
place to host group retreats of all kinds
(meditation, seminars for healing professionals
, and martial arts are some recent examples).
We are situated on a unique sacred mountain,
used in previous centuries as a Pomo
Indian ceremonial ground. Since it was
established as a Zen meditation center
over 35 years ago, the environment permeates
with a sense of deep calm and serenity.
Encompassing 81 acres of rolling hills
and forests, the grounds overlook the
Valley of the Moon and nearby vineyards.
We are surrounded by groves of giant
redwoods, madrone, and oak trees, as
well as wild deer, birds, and open space.
We are located 20 minutes from Santa Rosa, and only one hour north of San Francisco. Our facilities include a meditation hall converted from a turn-of-the-century redwood barn with pinewood flooring (30’x 40’), surrounded by redwood decks, a cozy dining room (16’ x 26’), a large spacious yurt (30’ diameter), a smaller yurt (20’ diameter), a beautiful restroom/bath house-uniquely inspired by the art of Japanese joinery, and several rustic cabins, all of which can accommodate up to 30 people as overnight guests. Delicious vegetarian meals are provided, as well as tea and coffee. Minimum of 15 people for group reservations with a timespan of three to ten days. Please contact the office at (707) 545-8105 or firstname.lastname@example.org with inquiries into price and reservations.
