Crestone Mountain Zen Center is a Zen Buddhist Monastery and Retreat Center located in the mountains of southwest Colorado. CMZC offers residential Zen monastic practice and a variety of Zen programs. Day visitors are welcome to participate in the daily meditation schedule.

The Center welcomes guests, who may rent cabins and use the facilities for individual retreats. In August and September, the Center is open for group retreats, workshops and conferences.
