Zen-inspired Senior Living

Enso Village

Healdsburg, CA

Mindful Living and Contemplative Care

This agrarian village is designed to promote self-reflection, growth and active, healthy living for seniors while reflecting the highest level of land stewardship and design. The ‘California Zen’ barn forms define gardens, courtyards and purposeful community spaces that support aging mindfully and living joyfully.

Cultivating Community and Connection

Interconnected agri-hoods focus on developing community through engagement—blending organic gardening, mindful cooking and eating, meditation, exercise and wellness. The ever-changing menu of activities is paired with a Zen-inspired spirit of connection, compassion and mutual respect, as well as the San Francisco Zen Center's respected approach to aging and death.

Environmental Stewardship

Enso Village is net-zero targeted and designed for resiliency. Red-list free dwellings support the health of residents and planet alike. The site design encourages active mobility through walking and biking, together with opportunities to pause and enjoy the multi-sensory landscape.
