JGarden Description:The Tassajara Zen Mountain Center is a retreat operated by the San Francisco Zen Center. Tassajara is located in a remote part of the Ventana Wilderness. In 1966 the first Soto Zen monastery outside of Asia was established at Tassajara by Shunryu Suzuki Roshi and the San Francisco Zen Center, to provide a place where students of Buddhism could withdraw from the busy world for a period of intensive meditation and study. During the summer, guests are welcome to come and enjoy the beauty unique to this secluded valley. The grounds include natural hot springs, hiking trails, meditation halls and a garden
