Welcome to Green Mountain Zen!

We are Zen Buddhist practice community based in Wellington, New Zealand. We offer a regular programme of classes in sitting meditation, half- and full-day Zen retreats and Sesshin (extended retreats). The community is under the guidance of Philip Shinko Squire, Roshi, and affiliated to Yokoji Zen Mountain Center in Southern California.

During New Zealand being in alert levels 4 or 3, all Green Mountain Zen events have been moved to video conferencing.
We are practising together:
