Still Mountain Buddhist Meditation Center

Still Mountain Buddhist Meditation Center

A community of people practicing meditation and studying Buddhist teaching, based in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Vision Statement

Still Mountain Buddhist Meditation Center is dedicated to developing greater freedom of the heart and mind through the practice and teachings of the Buddha.

The Still Mountain Buddhist Meditation sangha aspires to be egalitarian, transparent, and inclusive.

Rooted in the Theravada tradition, Still Mountain actively seeks meaningful dialogue between various Buddhist schools for deeper learning, understanding, and wisdom.

Participants are not asked to subscribe to any belief system but are encouraged to look to their own practice for what is useful. Teachings are offered as guidance.

Still Mountain aspires to cultivate and express kindness and compassion toward all beings.

The birds have vanished down the sky.

Now the last cloud drains away.

We sit together, the mountain and me,

until only the mountain remains
