If you are coming to the temple for the first time, even if you have practiced any form of meditation before, we ask that you contact the temple and arrange for meditation instruction. It is very helpful for newcomers to become familiar with our forms of meditation and what we teach at the temple, as well as our morning and evening ceremonial services.
Please wear comfortable, modest, loose-fitting clothing (no shorts, skin-tight yoga pants, or t-shirts with logos) in quiet colors and avoid perfumes and other strong fragrances.
Rev. Master Koshin Schomberg of North Cascades Buddhist Priory recorded a series of meditation instruction videos. Newcomers will find it helpful to view at least the first two in the series: Introduction to Meditation and Physical Aspects of Serene Reflection Meditation.
The temple is closed Sunday afternoon.
