Quiet Days of Practice at Bastyr

October 28 and December 9 10am-4pm

We continue to offer Quiet Days of Practice at Bastyr University in Kenmore. (Please note that these events are sponsored by Mountain Lamp Community, not Bastyr University.)

On Quiet Days, we practice sitting and walking meditation, a formal meal at mid-day, and outdoor walking meditation in the beauty of the forest. There will be a Dharma talk offered by our teacher. We end our day together with a guided relaxation and reading of the sutras or precept recitation. It is an opportunity to let go of our worries and anxieties and be present with all that is, resting deeply in just this moment.
Please bring a vegetarian sack lunch and your own zafu/bench/zabuton if you have these.

Some cushions, mats and chairs will be available on site.
The cost for the day is $50, plus dana for the teachings.
Please register in advance at
All are welcome – no experience necessary
