Welcome to Tassajara Zen Mountain Center

Zenshinji (Zen Heart-Mind Temple) is located in central California, in a remote valley in the heart of the Ventana Wilderness area of the Los Padres National Forest. Tassajara was founded in 1967 by the late Zen teacher Shunryu Suzuki Roshi. Closed to visitors during the fall and winter months, in late spring and summer Tassajara is opened to day and overnight guests.

Tassajara is no longer accepting reservations for the Summer 2022 guest season or applications for the Summer 2022 work practice programs.
