Welcome to Saranam

Our sangha of Zen practitioners found a home in the mountains. We have been happy to share it with many contemplative traditions, creative endeavors, community events and meetings.


We invite you to join us in rejuvenating both body and mind through meditation, art, acts of service, and connecting with nature.


Saranam Retreat Center's unique facilities are available for you to host your own events. We'd love to have you!


Saranam is a non-profit organization recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, and can offer a receipt for tax-deductible donations. Donations to Saranam go a long way in preserving the traditions of thought, spirituality, and community that we've created and shared over the years.
