Great Tree Women's Temple
679 Lower Flat Creek Road
Asheville, NC 28816
Our mission is to create a Soto Zen Buddhist community for all that supports a residential home for women. We also strive to support the national and southeastern Buddhist communities to integrate, explore and cultivate the spirituality of the feminine, body awareness, and family and children’s perspectives into the practice.
Great Tree Zen Temple seeks the breadth of Soto Zen practice, as described by Dogen Zenji, in ways that may not currently be understood or practiced.
We open our hearts and minds to cultivate an expansive and integrated awareness.
