where Earth meets Sky


Two Arrows Zen, founded by Michael Mugaku Zimmerman Sensei and Diane Musho Hamilton Sensei, is a center of Zen study and practice with two locations. One is a small zendo located in the town of Torrey, just outside of Capitol Reef National Park in the heart of Utah's red rock country, the Boulder Mountain Zendo. The other is an urban center located at Artspace in downtown Salt Lake City, the ArtSpace Zendo. Musho Sensei and Mugaku Sensei are both lineage holders in the Soto Zen tradition of Taizan Maezumi Roshi and Genpo Merzel Roshi.

Two Arrows Zen retreats take place in a traditional Zen sesshin atmosphere. Daily zazen, dharma talks, and interviews with the teachers. There are also some innovative elements to the practice including tele-courses, virtual temple days, and on-line koan study. The program of study and practice is designed to appeal to a broad audience--to those in the mainstream, including householders who raise children, hold jobs, and seek liberation within that life plan.
