Here are some upcoming events at Mountain Lamp (rural practice center located in Northern Washington):
- October 16-18: Zazenkai at Mountain Lamp
- November 7 Community gathering to recite the 14 Mindfulness Trainings at 5pm followed by potluck supper.
- December 12: Day of Quiet Practice from 10am-5pm will include dharma talk by Eileen, personal interviews, walking, sitting and working practice (potluck lunch)
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.
Enjoy these deep healing practices with friends.
