♦ ♦ ♦ If you have landed here and it looks different, be at ease… We are working together to bring you a new and updated web site for Great Tree by late June. We are  still in the editing process.  We appreciate your patience.

Great Tree is a temple in the Soto Zen tradition.

  • We offer practice programs, retreats and events open to everyone.
  • Residential practice is available for women only.
  •  Dharma teachings, zazen instruction, family meditation, and youth programs
  • We endeavor to create a community founded upon the teachings of Shakyamuni Buddha.
Our vision is to provide a safe and healthy environment for the practice of Zen as it has been passed down through the Soto lineage and  to create space for dialogue and the exploration of  feminine spirituality within that tradtiion.
