New Year's retreat

Applications are open for our New Year's retreat, which will be led by Sante Roshi this year. Jukai following the stroke of midnight is a great way to see in the New Year. We start with dinner on 29 December and finish with brunch on New Year's day. Please apply online by 15 December. As usual, this special retreat is restricted to members who have already attended sesshin at Zengården.

Public Transport

We are about 200km west of Stockholm, in the hamlet of Finnåker, about 30 km from the town of Arboga. There are frequent trains from Stockholm Central Station to Arboga, and the journey takes about one-and-a-half hours. We arrange to meet you at the Arboga train station and drive you to Zengården.

It is also possible to take public transport all the way to our door: a train from Stockholm via Örebro to Lindesberg, and a bus from Lindesberg to Finnåker. This option takes a little longer and is more expensive, however, and most people prefer to come via Arboga.

Getting to Zengården by road from Arboga

You can find a description of the route to Arboga train station from anywhere in Sweden on www.eniro.se.

Turn right out of Arboga train station, drive several hundred metres, then turn right into Skandiagatan. Drive about 1100 metres, then turn left at a large roundabout, onto Route 249, heading towards Lindesberg. Stay on this road as it passes through the town of Fellingsbro. About 5km past Fellingsbro, you will see a church on your right. Immediately past the church, take the turn-off to the right, towards Finnåker. Drive about 1500m and then turn left, towards Finnåker. Follow this road for about 9km. Zengården is easy to spot when you come to it: On the right-hand side of the road, there is a parking area/bus stop with three lampposts and a sign saying Zengården. The large, oblong building up the steps from the parking area is our main building.
