DRBA-Logo-gold-transparentSnow Mountain Monastery

Retreat Camp

Every spring through summer, Snow Mountain Monastery holds a Chan (Zen) Meditation session and recitation sessions such as Amitabha Buddha, Gwan Shr Yin Bodhisattva, Earth Store Bodhisattva, and the Six-Syllable Great Bright Mantra Recitation(Om Mani Padme Hum).

The Chan sessions begin with walking meditation followed by sitting meditation, alternating throughout the day with instructional talks in the mornings and afternoons.

The recitation sessions begin with recitations of Buddhist texts followed up with an alternation of walking, sitting, and silent recitation.  We conclude the day with reflection and interactive Dharma talks.

To join us, for carpool or for overnight stay, please contact us or call our sister branch (206) 284-6690 for arrangements and confirmation.  If you can, please bring your personal sleeping bag and basic necessities.
