You’re not imagining it.
But you could have.

Welcome to the realization of a shared vision.
Zen-Inspired Senior Living is coming to southern California.

Welcome to Enso Verde


A Life Plan Community with a focus on mindful aging, the joys of nature, environmental stewardship and healthy life choices for adults 60+, Enso Verde will feature close to 300 thoughtfully designed contemporary senior living residences on a welcoming campus in the foothills of Ventura County in Southern California.

As a mirror of its sister community, Enso Village in Sonoma County, Enso Verde has been designed to extend the promise of Zen-inspired senior living to Greater Los Angeles.

A Place Like No Place Else.

As a collaboration of the San Francisco Zen Center, a landmark of American Zen practice, and Kendal, a visionary provider of communities, programs and services founded on Quaker principles, Enso Verde will offer a radical departure from the conventions of senior living as you know them. The residences are contemporary. The culture is inclusive and socially aware. The food is incomparably fresh. The healthcare offering is unsurpassed. And here, life will be active and joyful, as well as mindful.
