News from Sōshinji 宗心寺, Ancestral Heart Zen Monastery

On June 10, 2019, we became stewards of fourteen acres of land in Millerton, NY, where we are together working to bring Sōshinji 宗心寺Ancestral Heart Zen Monasteryinto being.

We are exceedingly fortunate to be able to practice together with the land, our ancestors, and all living beings in the beautiful Hudson River valley where silence and activity exist in marvelous balance. We welcome, want, and affirm all who come here in search of freedom from habits that cause suffering and who will work toward cultivating compassion for all, across our many differences. If you are interested in applying for a weekend visit or for a short-term or long-term residence, please fill out the respective application and send it to
