“Luz Serena” Zen Centre is the spiritual central place of the Spanish Buddhist Soto Zen Community. It is located in a 33 hectares property of pine woods in an area of winding hills between the provinces of Valencia and Albacete, 5 km. from River Cabriel. It is one of the best-preserved natural sites of Comunidad Valenciana. It has excellent conditions for the practice of meditation, rest and reflection.
We offer a central house of about 300 m2, which has several rooms, a big kitchen, a dining room and a meeting room.
There is also available a meditation room of about 100 metres, which can be used as a work room for groups.
The hostelry and other rooms can have a group up to 40 people.
Luz Serena is located in the limit of the Natural Park of Las Hoces del Cabriel, in the buffer area of the Park.
The Buddhist Soto Zen Community is committed to the respect for the natural environment and the awakening of the ecological conscience. Thus, it has become into part of the property as a Floral Micro-Reserve, which has been recognised by Generalitat Valenciana. Within the European project “Life”, it is carrying out a series of measures and investments which will allow the opening to the public of this reserve in some years time. On the other hand, due to its determination to motivate the creation of an Ecozone in the region, it has created, together with other collectives, the Asociation “Bosques para la Vida” (“Woods for Life”)
