“Every step we take is home,” says Dogen. We have a residential and local sangha growing from the central hub of our practice at Bread Loaf Mountain Monastery in Cornwall, Vermont. A beautiful place. Come and practice with us!

Our temple grounds include a home and barn built in 1810 in Cornwall – between Middlebury and the towns of Leicester and Whiting, equidistant from Burlington to the north and Rutland to the south.  Our comfortable home includes 5 bedrooms, a dining room, three-season porch, reading rooms, and a Zendo for meditation and liturgy. We are so fortunate to be surrounded by acres of well-kept apple orchards and vast panoramic views of the Green Mountains and Bread Loaf Mountain.

Guests are welcome to come for periods of personal retreat. Contact Joshin if you would like to visit Bread Loaf Mountain Monastery for a period of personal retreat.

If you are interested in residency at BLMM, please contact Joshin.
