Boulder Mountain Zendo in Torrey

Boulder Mountain Zendo in Torrey, September 2017The newly constructed Boulder Mountain Zendo in Torrey 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. 

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 Boulder Mountain Zendo in Torrey.

We are deeply grateful to the many members and donors who generously contributed to fully funding the Boulder Mountain Zendo in Torrey.  We are currently fundraising for the Social Pavilion, a simple board and batten structure with a wood stove that will support four-season dining and gatherings during retreats and sesshins.
