Welcome to Mountain Lamp

Mountain Lamp is a rural practice center located on 115 acres of meadows, lakes and forest lands nestled in the foothills of the North Cascade Mountains. It is a place of serenity and refuge which embraces the path of an engaged Buddhist practice in the traditions of Robert Aitken Roshi and Thich Nhat Hanh. We offer day events, group and individual retreats and hold a year-round daily practice schedule.

Upcoming Events

Zen Weekend Retreat (October 16 - 18) with Jack Duffy. The retreat will include zazen, personal interviews and two dharma talks on the Jewel Mirror of Dongshan during the weekend. The Jewel Mirror is referred to in Ross Bolleter's excellent book, Five Ranks, and the sutra can also be found in the Mountain Lamp sutra book if you'd like to 'study' ahead of the talks. Find more information here. Download the registration form here.
