Join Aline on retreat at the Zen Mountain Center, a Zen Buddhist meditation center located at the base of the San Jacinto Mountain range in pristine Idyllwild, California! 


The Zen Mountain Center is " off grid " and run on solar power and generators. There is no cell service giving you a great opportunity to unplug and reset! This is a " luxury camping " style retreat.

There is beautiful  main bathhouse with exceptional solar heated hot water and stone floors. The resident Tenshin is a master carpenter and has created each building to resemble a Japanese temple in style, blending perfectly into the mountain landscape.
