Welcome to Keiryuji

Keiryuji (or Mountain Stream Temple) is a remote Soto Zen-Buddhist hermitage in the Spanish Pyrenees, near the village of Camprodon. It lies in the middle of a protected nature reserve, at 750 meters altitude.

Keiryuji welcomes anyone who wishes to take a break from his or her daily life and dedicate some time to contemplation and reflection. Regardless of spiritual tradition or beliefs, the teacher of Keiryuji will individually guide and support each person throughout their stay.

The abbot or teacher is Gakudo den Hollander Sensei; he is supported by his wife Koren Kasman Sensei. They both are Dharma heirs to Tenkei Coppens (Zen River, the Netherlands) and members of the White Plum Lineage, established by the late Maezumi Roshi in the USA. They are also fully certified by the Japanese Soto School.
