Guest Accommodations
Green Gulch Farm offers a variety of overnight accommodations in a meditative retreat space dense with trees and foliage just 10 miles north of San Francisco.

Guest Practice Retreats (Half Schedule)
Our Guest Practice Retreat programs offer an opportunity to combine personal retreat with a deeper engagement in the practice community at Green Gulch.

Guest Student Stays (Full Schedule)
Guest Students reside in student housing and participate in the full meditation and work schedule and attend classes, lectures, and ceremonies. This program offers short-term residency to those interested in beginning or deepening Zen practice with the support of a community.

Apprenticeship Programs
Apprentices may stay and work either in the farm and garden or elsewhere on the campus at Green Gulch Farm Zen Center.

Residential Practice
The Green Gulch Resident Training Program is designed to support Zen students to sit zazen, practice intimately with each other and with the bodhisattva precepts, and gain a thorough understanding of what it is to take refuge in Buddha, Dharma and Sangha.
