Harvest Retreat Sept 2015 at Mountain Lamp

Mountain Lamp will be hosting a Plum Village style “Harvest” retreat in mid September, co-led by Eileen Kiera and Kaira Jewel (formerly Sister Jewel).  This will be a pretty special retreat with Eileen and Kaira both contributing their wisdom and practice.  There should also be very good food from the late summer organic garden at Mountain Lamp!

The Sangha will be looking into a letter that Thây wrote to his students last fall, shortly before his stroke and will be exploring the 3 Bodies of the Buddha, the 5 Skandhas, Bodhicitta and the importance of intelligent practice.

Hello dear friends,

Spring is upon us here at Mountain Lamp.  This morning, there were so many new birds singing.  At night the owls are thrumming for mates, and in the early morning, the woodpeckers are finding loud surfaces (like the metal roofs here) to make their presence known through the whole valley.  We just ordered our garden seeds.  On March 7th, we will have a work day for pruning the orchard and a bonfire with s’mores.  We hope you can join us.

Warmly, Eileen
