Green Gulch Farm Morning

Green Gulch Farm

Welcome to Green Gulch Farm

Green Dragon Temple/Green Gulch Farm (Soryu-ji) is a Buddhist practice center in the Japanese Soto Zen tradition, offering training in Zen meditation, philosophy, and work. The mission of Green Gulch is to awaken the bodhisattva spirit—the spirit of kindness and realistic helpfulness—as a living enactment of Buddha's Way.

Green Gulch offers sittings, practice periods, other Zen practice events, Sunday Dharma talks (in-person and through the Online Zendo), and workshops. Please visit the Calendar page for more details. Sign up for our Sangha News email to receive notices of upcoming events.

Applications are being accepted for the Kitchen and Guest Program work practice apprenticeships, Farm & Land Steward Apprenticeship Program, and for Guest Student Stays.

Conference facilities and in-person programs are open. Visit our Conference Center Rentals page for more information.

The Middle Green Gulch and Upper Green Gulch trails are only accessible from the Coyote Ridge Trail and from Muir Beach. We are unable to offer day visitor parking at this time to hikers and others who are passing through Green Gulch. Please remain on the marked trails. Facilities are closed to the general public.
