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.

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
