Windhorse is a space of elegant simplicity surrounded by the natural beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains. With breathtaking mountain views and wooded trails, this quiet, meditative environment is perfect for those seeking a unique weekend experience near Asheville. The full time Zen Center offers daily meditation, speciality workshops, and contemplative retreats. The teachers at Windhorse, Roshi Sunya Kjolhede and Roshi Lawson Sachter, are ordained Dharma heirs of Roshi Philip Kapleau.

The space
This being a Buddhist center, it is a drug/alcohol/meat-free zone, offering vegetarian and vegan breakfasts. An introduction to Zen meditation is included as part of the program. Those who stay through Sunday are also invited to attend our regular community gathering (9:30-11:30 AM), which includes meditation, Zen chanting, a dharma talk by one of the teachers and a short discussion period, and for those who can stay, a potluck brunch afterward.
