Personal Retreat Request

Mountain Lamp is located in the foothills of the North Cascade Mountains on 115 acres of meadow and forest. It is a beautiful and quiet place with a lush garden and orchard. We enjoy a daily practice schedule of meditation, with an emphasis on mindfulness in everything we do: eating, walking and working, and invite you to join in fully with our daily practice.

Should you want an orientation to mindfulness and meditation practice, please ask us in advance. There are two resident teachers here: Jack Duffy, Roshi (in the Diamond Sangha lineage); and Eileen Kiera, Dharmacarya (appointed by Thich Nhat Hanh) who are available to meet with people individually on many mornings during sitting meditation.

We look forward to practicing with you.
