going solar

Since August 2023 the Magnolia Zen Center's buildings are all converted to solar energy! Thank you to all who helped with the fundraising and financing - and to all who have donated so far. We feel proud and optimistic that we are able to contribute through solar energy to a more sustainable future! 

YOUR GENEROUS DONATION HELPS us to pay off the financing ($28,000 remaining) that the Magnolia Zen Center took on to move forward in going solar.

We are a Center that is engaged worldwide to promote nonviolence and change. The Magnolia Zen Center, located in Mary Esther, Florida, hosts weekly programs and residential retreats to learn how Buddhist teachings and meditation practice can be of support in the process of healing and transformation. Our programs are attended by military veterans, trauma survivors, individuals in recovery, helping professionals, and others seeking practical tools for facing suffering and finding peace with their unpeacefulness.

The Magnolia Zen Center is run by the Zaltho Foundation, a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit that promotes the practice of meditation, with a special focus on supporting combat veterans.
