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.
