Every Tuesday evening 630-8pm and the 2rd Saturday of each month 1-5pm as indicated on our events calendar, the Monks of the Pacific Hermitage lead meditation and offer teachings. All are welcome…no meditation experience or registration is necessary. These events are freely offered, however donations to help support the monks are appreciated.

The Pacific Hermitage is nestled along a forested stretch of White Salmon’s Jewett Creek and is the home of a small group of Theravada Buddhist monks.

Established in the summer of 2010, the Hermitage is a place of solitude for these monks who devote their lives to meditation and simple living. The monks walk daily through the town of White Salmon to accept donations of food, and are available to the community as a spiritual resource.
