Welcome to Mountain Lamp

Mountain Lamp is a rural meditation 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 Aiken Roshi and Thich Nhat Hanh. We offer day events, group and individual retreats and hold a year-round daily practice schedule.
