Founded in 1980, ZMM is widely considered one of the foremost training centers of Zen Buddhist practice in the West and is located less than 10 minutes east of downtown Phoencia. It’s accessible to anyone living or visiting the area with an interest in meditation and creative expression. Throughout the year, the monastery offers a range of weekend retreats focused around various art forms, and meditation programs lasting a weekend or full week. There’s also a weekly Sunday morning program where visitors can step into the life of the monastery for a few hours and learn the art of meditation from one of the monastics or senior lay students, and hear a talk given by one of the resident teachers. Visit zmm.mro.org for more information.
