I happened upon the Bodhi Mandala Zen Center in Jemez Springs, when traveling from Chaco Canyon to Santa Fe. Being early April, I didn't consider that the national forest campgrounds would still be closed for the winter, so I began looking around this quaint funky little town (nice galleries, two commercial hot springs, and a great coffee shop and bakery...

I was here for a seminar. It was not a seminar directly related to the Center, however the Abbess made us feel really included, and offered us special meditation sessions. These are my major take aways: 1. AMAZING food. You will never realize that you're not eating meat (if you're not a vegetarian). It is all fresh, scrumptious, filling. 2....

When a friend from out of town came to visit, a friend from Taos suggested we all go to the Bodhi Mandala Zen Center to soak in their hot springs. (NOTE: on the Zen Center's website, they call their place the Bodhi Manda Zen Center.) My Taos friend had visited here to soak a couple of times over the course...

thank you so much for a quiet retreat after my painting classes. The pools were wonderful as well! What more need be said, even though they require 200 characters. this is a Zen Center, you do not expect the same as you would in a hotel.

I spent 2 days at the Bodhi Mandala Zen Center and loved it. Hosen and the rest of the residents were very welcoming and friendly. I was invited to some of their meditations and to join them in simple meals. I felt like one of the community. I stayed in a dorm room - 7 beds but I had it...

I loved the setting: Buddhist statuary, hummingbirds; the mountains & river along the hot spring pools as well as one of water lilies. Yes, there was algae in the soaking pools, which I scooped out. But I loved being alone outside, in peace & nature. I chose one of the dorm rooms, which I was able to lock. Contrary to...

I decided to take a week long retreat in early February and wanted to be someplace where I could have solitude and at the same time, pamper myself just a bit. I chose Bodhi Mandala Zen Center because I had heard that they had hot springs and that it was an active Buddhist community. Upon arrival, I was greeted by...

I stayed at the Bodhi Zen Center last spring. As the review was so bad above, I can't help but feel like a competitor wrote it. The place is very, very clean, and yes the furniture is old and the linens are old but extremely clean. There are 200 year old framed maps on the walls and yes, old paneling,...

I also am motivated to write this to counter the vituperative review by "worldsprinter18." I attended an all-women's retreat at Bodhi Manda two years in a row, and both times it has been a lovely experience. I am a current, going-on-37-years resident of New York City and I had no problem with leaving my door unlocked. I loved my room,...

I just returned from a six day mens' spiritual retreat at the Bodhi Manda Zen Center. I want to counter the previous reviewer who obviously found great faults with the place. I stayed in one of the dorm rooms, which might qualify as average. Nothing to rave about, but we were not there for luxurious accomodations. The previous reviewer needs...

“The dorms have sliding glass doors straight out to the hot springs. The hotel-style rooms are about a 2-minute walk to the springs.”
  • Hot springs in the winter - YES, it actually was this beautiful!

“This is a Zen center. Therefore you do not expect the same as a hotel. It was just exactly what I wanted and I love the people there.”

“I prefer to stay in the building with the four individual rooms, as opposed to the dorm. Each room has it's own bathroom, with shower. There's a nice porch where you can admire the hummingbirds and the view. Some might find the furniture on the porch to be a little shabby; I found it to be very comfortable, and that's the only thing I cared about.”
