The Mountain Hermitage is dedicated to the inner cultivation and outer manifestation of 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. Most Mountain Hermitage retreats are for experienced Dhamma students, and are held in appropriate rented places in and around Taos.
The Mountain Hermitage extends a special welcome and has established a scholarship fund to support Buddhist monks and nuns and lay Dhamma teachers, as well as multi-cultural practitioners and other Dhamma students who without scholarship aid would not be able to attend Hermitage retreats.
All who come to practice at The Mountain Hermitage will be honored and supported in their quest to awaken to the deepest truths and to manifest these truths in their daily lives.
The Guiding teacher / director of The Mountain Hermitage is Marcia Rose.
