Retreats & Vacations
The offering entitles one guest to attend any three- or four-day Upaya Retreat from the 2012 calendar (exclusions: international trips, and Natalie Goldberg or Joanna Macy retreats). Included are: tuition, all meals, and dormitory shared lodging.
Upaya is a Zen Buddhist practice, service, and training center. The center, nestled in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, is a collection of traditional and new adobe buildings, combining Southwestern and Asian styles and featuring kiva fireplaces, rough hewn wood furniture, and captivating views of the surrounding mountains. Stone walkways meander through the native plants carpeting the campus, connecting private places with public meeting rooms, a communal kitchen, the meditation hall, and a sauna. If guests wish, they may explore the trails along the Santa Fe River and the nearby foothills. The Audubon Society preserve is within walking distance. Meal service features a delicious organic vegetarian menu seven days a week. The campus is equipped with wireless Internet. It is two miles from Santa Fe's historic plaza but lifetimes away from the demands of city life."
Upaya Zen Center's focuses on the integration of practice and social action, and bringing together wisdom and compassion.
Upgrades to double or single room would be at the cost of the guest, as well as any early arrival or late departure arrangements.
This certificate can not be used for any international travel or professional training programs.
