About Us

We are a lay Zen group that practices together in the Zen Buddhist tradition under the guidance of our teacher Jack Duffy Roshi. Jack, a dharma heir of Robert Aitken Roshi, lives near Bellingham, Washington.

Jack (our teacher) leads retreats in the Spokane area twice a year, as well as a week-long sesshin on the Olympic Peninsula near Seattle each April and November.

Additional retreat and practice opportunities with Jack are available with Three Treasures Sangha of the Pacific Northwest in Seattle (www.three-treasures-sangha.org) and at Mountain Lamp Community in Deming, Washington, near Bellingham.

    I’ve been interested in the zen tradition and joining a community that practices zazen for a couple of years now, but somehow only recently discovered this group. As a newcomer, is there any pertinent information or preliminary courses/meetings I need to attend in order to begin practice with you or do I just show up, fresh faced and ready? Thanks for your time.
