ZENHUB gathers successors and communities in the | Big Mind Big Heart International Community | Lineage of D. Genpo Merzel Roshi
Venue: USA > Torrey, Utah > Torrey Zendo
The newly constructed Torrey Zendo was dedicated in September 2017 and is now open for retreats year-round in the red-rock country of Southern Utah.
The Zendo is a dedicated space for the practice of zazen, seating up to 50 practitioners. A bathhouse, fully equipped outdoor kitchen and four-season social pavilion complete the retreat center facilities at 57 South 300 West in Torrey.
Two Arrows Zen also maintains a Sangha House in Torrey to support retreats and provide additional lodging options for staff and Two Arrows Zen members.
Our home in Torrey is high desert landscape bordered by a cattail-lined stream, sagebrush, pinion, juniper, and flowering rabbitbrush. The Zendo is in Wayne County, Utah in a valley shadowed by Boulder Mountain which is part of the 11,000 foot Aquarius alpine plateau.
SITTING IN TORREY
Two Arrows Zen Members and visitors are welcome to join the sitting practice at the Torrey Zendo during periods of open practice. The requested donation is $5 per sit or Two Arrows Zen Sustaining membership ($30/month).
The Torrey Zendo is closed for the winter season. The public meditation schedule will resume after Spring Sesshin in April 2019.
Retreats and Zen Sesshins are offered throughout the year by Diane Musho Hamilton Sensei and Michael Mugaku Zimmerman Sensei. Those include regular trips to Capitol Reef National Park or nearby locations to hike and sit among the red rocks.
Motels, cabins, and campgrounds are within an easy walking, biking, or driving distance of the Torrey Zendo.
We are deeply grateful to the many members and donors who generously contributed to fully funding the Torrey Zendo. We are currently fundraising to continue beautifying the property with landscaping and a temple bell.
Two Arrows Zen Torrey, Utah 57 South 300 West.
Torrey is 215 miles from Salt Lake City which is the nearest airport. Plan for 4 hours of travel time from SLC to Torrey.
From Salt Lake City, take I-15 south through Provo, through Payson and Nephi, to the Scipio exit, about 120 miles from Salt Lake City. Take exit 188 off on the right. Turn across over I15 to the southeast. This will take you past two gas stations and to a stop sign on US 50 E, which is Scipio’s main street. Turn right and drive through Scipio continuing on US 50. Go 24 miles and turn right at sign for Utah 260 South, towards the little town of Aurora. Go through Aurora (Watch the speed. They have a police car.) As you pass through Aurora, keep to the left, and you’ll come to a stop sign at US 89. Turn right. About a mile and a half along US 89, after you pass under the I 70 under-pass, you will see a sign on the left for Capitol Reef National Park. Turn left onto US 24. Follow this road for about 60 miles. It will take you through Loa, then through Lyman and Bicknell, then into Torrey. (Again, watch the speed limits in Loa, Lyman, Bicknell. It changes several times along this stretch of road.)
Two Arrows Zen is just after you enter Torrey, on the right hand side, just past the Motel Torrey. There is a cottonwood tree on the right hand side, and a sign for 300 West. The road is gravel. You turn onto 300 West to the right, passing over the culvert over an irrigation canal. Immediately on the left, you’ll see logs laid perpendicular from the side of the road to create parking spaces. Park here. The Zendo is then in front of you.
