Three Treasures Sangha offers Zen meditation on a weekly and monthly basis at Dharma Gate, and more intensive, week-long silent retreats (Sesshins) twice each year at Mountain Lamp. You don’t need to be Buddhist to practice meditation! Everyone is welcome to attend.

Weekly Zazen at Dharma Gate

We offer practice in sitting meditation, called Zazen. On Wednesday nights, you can also meet individually with a teacher.

  • Wednesday evenings 7:00pm—8:30pm
  • Friday — mornings 6:30—7:30am, followed by breakfast and a discussion of practice-related topics.

Zazenkais and Sesshins

Zazenkais are one- or two-day meditation retreats, held monthly at Dharma Gate. Sesshins are longer retreats—usually seven days—that include sitting and walking meditation, chanting, talks by the teacher, and student-teacher interviews. Sesshins are held at Mountain Lamp, our affiliated retreat center near Bellingham, Washington.
