Current Residency Openings

Current Openings.  SWZC accepts applications for residency throughout the year on an ongoing basis. We currently have the following residential openings:

Long Term Residency:  We will have a 2-bedroom cottage opening around September 1st. This is perfect for someone wanting to develop a meditation practice, or live in community. The community has a lovely yurt for meditation plus many opportunities to be involved in an active community. Great for those interested in living simply in community, including a community vegetable garden, community potlucks, & working together around the community.

Housing fees for the cottage are $1,000 a month for a single adult, or $1,050 a month for two adults, plus deposit, & three hours of work around the place every month.

For more information on residency see the residency program information page: The cottage is shown by appointment only. For more information please contact the Community Gateway Circle steward


Short Term Residency: Short-term residency opportunities are now available as part of the Summer Ango programming. For more information on Ango, see our Ango 2016 information page.

Short-term residency—whether as a guest stay, personal retreat, or zen student–are available for periods as short as a week, and as long as three months. For short term resident rates and application please contact the SWZC Guest master.
