The newly constructed Torrey Zendo was dedicated in September 2017 and is now open for retreats year-round in the red-rock country of Southern Utah.
The Zendo is a dedicated space for the practice of zazen, seating up to 50 practitioners. A bathhouse, fully equipped outdoor kitchen and four-season social pavilion complete the retreat center facilities at 57 South 300 West in Torrey.
Two Arrows Zen also maintains a Sangha House in Torrey to support retreats and provide additional lodging options for staff and Two Arrows Zen members.
Our home in Torrey is high desert landscape bordered by a cattail-lined stream, sagebrush, pinion, juniper, and flowering rabbitbrush. The Zendo is in Wayne County, Utah in a valley shadowed by Boulder Mountain which is part of the 11,000 foot Aquarius alpine plateau.
SITTING IN TORREY
Two Arrows Zen Members and visitors are welcome to join the sitting practice at the Torrey Zendo during periods of open practice. The requested donation is $5 per sit or Two Arrows Zen Sustaining membership ($30/month).
The Torrey Zendo is closed for the winter season. The public meditation schedule will resume after Spring Sesshin in April 2019.
Retreats and Zen Sesshins are offered throughout the year by Diane Musho Hamilton Sensei and Michael Mugaku Zimmerman Sensei. Those include regular trips to Capitol Reef National Park or nearby locations to hike and sit among the red rocks.
Motels, cabins, and campgrounds are within an easy walking, biking, or driving distance of the Torrey Zendo.

We are deeply grateful to the many members and donors who generously contributed to fully funding the Torrey Zendo. We are currently fundraising to continue beautifying the property with landscaping and a temple bell.
