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


Family Camp-Out (July 21 - 24) With full time children’s program. How do we parent with our spiritual values in the forefront?

The Still Heart (August 31 - September 5) Cultivating the Inner Life. In silence, we allow our minds to quiet and listen more closely to the thinking heart. On retreat together, we practice sitting, walking, eating and working in companionable silence. Everyone is welcome at this 6 day retreat with Eileen Kiera
