Dragon Lake Zen is a Boulder-based organization of Zen practitioners who are longtime students of Diane Musho Hamilton Roshi. We practice in the White Plum branch of Soto Zen Buddhism, and live at the fruitful intersection of deep tradition and bold innovation. We assert that there exists, here and now, a way and a training that can welcome our divisions, clarify value, and align with the currents of life-force that bring unreasonable joy, clear wisdom, and unconditioned compassion to all beings.
Lineage & Liberation
We invite you to fulfill your longing to discover and participate in practices and communities that restore a connection to self, cultivate resilience in our nervous systems, reawaken our interdependence, and reinvigorate our relationship to life.
The Art of Aliveness

The Art of Aliveness retreat is an invitation to come home to your true self, to the potency of reality as it is, and to creatively express the uniqueness of your being. It is an opportunity to connect with a community of others who not only support your practice, but who mirror the preciousness of this one life.
