Spiritual Director: Venerable Luang Por Samarn Saengsri  Email  
Notes and Events:

The sanctuary is located on eighty-five quiet, wooded acres away from paved roads and cell phone signals, a perfect setting for meditation practice. The Buddha said, “Here are roots of trees, here are empty huts – practice jhana! (meditation). Do not be negligent! Do not regret it later!”

Following the forest monastery tradition in Thailand, monks, nuns, and lay people reside and practice individually in kutis (small 8’ x 8’ cabins) which are spaced around the hillsides, using the sala (central meditation hall) for meals, dhamma study, chanting, and group meditation. The experience of aloneness and detachment, away from the hustle and bustle of the world, offers a rare opportunity to take his or her meditation practice and spiritual development to new levels. 

The sanctuary is maintained by two full-time resident anagarikas: Upasaka Eddie Rock and Upasika Janet Rock, who support visiting meditators by providing food, lodging, and meditation guidance if requested based on the fundamentals of Theravada Buddhist spiritual practice as originally taught by the Buddha 2,550 years ago.

We provide the opportunity for you to schedule your own time here, whether it is only a quick day visit or a long-term retreat.

For those staying overnight, taking the Eight Precepts is a requirement, which are the foundation of Buddhist training and a prerequisite to successful meditation practice.

Notes and Events:

In October of 2003, San Antonio Zen arose out of a wish to share the Dharma and sitting practice in the Soto traditions of Shunryu Suzuki. This wish was realized with the guidance and example of the teachers and students of the Austin Zen Center. We also have cultivated and cherished ties with the Houston Zen Center and the San Francisco Zen Center.

We aspire to benefit all beings (including ourselves) in each moment, unconditionally, with awareness, energy, lovingkindness, compassion, joy and equanimity, relaxing with what is, to realize awakening.
