We will have a Zoom intensive retreat with Jack, Madelon, and Lee November 12-14. The detailed schedule is below. Here is an overall summary of the 3 days:


Friday: 6:30pm-9:00pm

Saturday: 8:15am-12:30pm, lunch, 2:30-5:00pm

Sunday: 8:15am-12:30pm

The intensive weekend Zoom retreat will begin Friday at 6:30 PM with gathering for a short introduction to the form with Zoom, and zazen at 7:00 PM. The full schedule is included at the bottom of this page. A Zoom link will be sent the week of the retreat to all who register. If you don’t receive a link you can also email:

There is no better time for focused practice than this! Consider joining for what you can.

Ceremony of recognition: On Sunday we will have a ceremony in recognition of Jack’s years of dedicated teaching and encouragement, followed by the confirmation of Lee as Diamond Sangha teacher associated with Three Treasures Sangha.

Registration: It would be helpful if all participants would send an email confirming your plan for attendance to Barb Carey (click here) including your phone number. Registration is necessary for full-time participants who would like dokusan with Jack. All are welcome to attend at the last minute as well.

Dana: We ask for dana for the teaching. As you think about what to give, please remember Jack’s commitment to practice year-round, and to each of us and all of us during a retreat. Dana can be sent to Jack Duffy, Box 512, Deming, WA 98244, or the Mountain Lamp PayPal account with a note that it is for Jack.
