A person & a place:

Rev. Alaric Hutchinson is known as the Zen Cowboy and is an author, life coach, Zen teacher, modern monk, and line dancing instructor. However, The Zen Cowboy is also a physical place you can visit in beautiful Bayfield, Colorado. The center hosts weekly classes, Sunday Zen church, monthly community events, private coaching sessions, and by next year, an Air BnB for individual Zen retreats.

Our focus: inner peace & joyful living

Zen is very open and applicable to all walks of life, no matter your religious, spiritual, or atheistic background. We do not teach dogma, instead our focus is on teaching Living Peace philosophy, mindfulness, and daily practices that cultivate inner peace, community connection, and joyful living.

Life transforming results

Alaric offers in-depth life coaching for clients and Zen training for students all over the world via Zoom video-chat. Please view our services page for additional information. If you're local, you are invited to check out our weekly church gathering any Sunday at 1:00pm. Please view our community page for further details.



Schedule an introductory consultation or a full 1:1 life coaching session with Alaric.


Rev. Alaric has had the honor to officiate many wedding ceremonies, including some for his students!


Join us every Sunday at 1:00pm for a spiritual "Zen Church" service focused on inner peace development.

Alaric was featured on Fox 10 Morning News with his book, Living Peace.

“Alaric's teachings for inner peace are profound and effective. Anyone who would like more peace, love, or joy in their lives needs to go see Alaric. Not only is he the best in town at what he does, his pricing is very affordable. You owe it to yourself to see what Alaric can do for you.”

― Trevor

I've been seeing Alaric one-on-one for life coaching for almost two months now. I felt a little awkward on my way to my first session but  my anxiety vanished when we sat down and started talking. Alaric made me feel completely at ease and never once seemed judgmental despite my "horror stories". He has helped me through so many obstacles in such a short amount of time. — April

“Alaric was my families first spiritual teacher. His lessons still resonate with me and serve me well. Alaric has my full endorsement. I recommend both his book and his community in Queen Creek. I love and miss you Reverend!”
