Student Stays



If you are interested in coming to CMZC, you can join the daily practice as a student or participate in one of our Zen Programs. To be a student at CMZC means to join the resident monks and lay practitioners in following the schedule completely. This includes meditation and work periods, talks and discussions, and community meals. Student Stays require at least a one week commitment. There are opportunities to extend stays; end dates will be based on other scheduled events and lodging availability. All fees include lodging and 3 vegetarian meals per day. Accommodations for Zen students may include shared rooms. Participation is subject to approval. We will review your request and set up a time to talk with you within a few days of receiving it. Once approved you'll be able to complete your registration and make your initial payment.
