Crestone Mountain Zen Center is the monastic training center of Dharma Sangha, the Zen Buddhist practice community founded in 1987 by Zentatsu Baker Roshi, dharma heir of Shunryu Suzuki Roshi.

Dharma Sangha has affiliated practice centers in Boulder, Colorado, and the Black Forest, Germany.

The fundamental practice at Crestone Mountain Zen Center is the daily schedule. To simply follow the scheduled periods of Zazen, work, meals, and study is the basis for our practice, individually and together. A variety of Zen programs and weekly dharma talks are offered throughout the year and are open to the public.
