Those unable to attend in-person are also welcome to tune in via Zoom or YouTube livestream.

Join us for a morning of meditation, Dhamma and a Q&A with honored guest Ven. Pomnyun Sunim! Known worldwide for his lucid and compassionate teachings, Ven. Pomnyun will be joining Clear Mountain for a special extended teaching Saturday, September 9th. The morning, starting at 9:30 am, will begin with meditation and continue with an extended Q&A, ending at 11:30 am. In the spirit of Dhamma, all teachings are offered completely free of charge, with nothing expected in return, though those inspired may give in-person or online. For directions and information on what to bring, see below. To register questions for the event, you may fill out this form. Sadhu!

What to Bring
A cushion to sit on if you want, though chairs will be available as well, and your love of practice!

Those driving may enter the campus at the north between the cathedral and the St. Nicholas Building – the location of the Gage Academy and Seattle Amistad School. They may then drive all the way to the back of the cathedral. Parking is free for Clear Mountain attendees even though signs in the lot indicate payment is required. If the “carriage gateway” behind the St. Nicholas building is open, participants are encouraged to park there. We encourage the use of public transportation when convenient, and the Seattle bus #49 stops at the corner of 10th Ave. and E Galer, just north of the meeting place.

Ven. Pomnuyn Sunim
Ven. Pomnyun Sunim entered the Buddhist Sangha as a novice in 1969 under the guidance of his teacher, Ven. Bulshim Domoon Sunim, at Boonwhangsa Temple, South Korea. In addition to spreading the Buddha’s teachings and helping individuals to free themselves from suffering through practice, he has participated actively in social movements to improve the society as a whole. Ven. Pomnyun Sunim* is renowned in his native South Korea and around the world for his insightful yet accessible Dharma talks and for his far-reaching humanitarian and peace efforts.
 In 1988, he founded Jungto Society, a volunteer-based community that follows the Buddha’s teachings. Based on the values of equality, simple living, and sustainability, the organization has dedicated itself to addressing social issues that lead to suffering, including environmental degradation, poverty, and conflict.
