The Mountain Hermitage is dedicated to the inner cultivation and outer manifestation of concentration, wisdom, lovingkindness, compassion, and peace. This home for long-term spiritual practice, grounded in the principles of Theravada Buddhism, is based in the quiet and beautiful mountain area of Taos, New Mexico.
Many Mountain Hermitage retreats are for experienced Dharma practitioners; however, the Hermitage is now offering some week-long retreats open to both beginning and experienced students. All retreats are held in appropriate rented places in and around Taos. The small group size at Hermitage retreats (usually a maximum of 18 students) helps create a more intimate experience and easier access to teachers. Scholarship aid is available for those who would not otherwise be able to attend Hermitage retreats
We send out an e-flyer once a month with the latest on our retreat offerings... and each flyer now also includes a short Dharma article. You can view previous flyers in the Archive below -- and sign up to receive them regularly on our website www.mountainhermitage.org.
