Green Mountain Zen is a 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, sesshin (extended retreats), and workshops in related disciplines.

The community is under the guidance of Philip Shinko Squire, Roshi, and affiliated to Yokoji Zen Mountain Center in Southern California. If you are interested in Zen practice and Buddhist teachings you will be warmly welcomed at our regular meetings, and perhaps the best time to join us for the first time would be at our regular Thursday evening sitting in Wellington. Please feel free to call or email Shinko Roshi for more information.

Please have a look at our Events and Practice page to see upcoming events like Zen introduction evenings.

Green Mountain Zen is also on Facebook, and you can subscribe to our regular newsletter.
