House Openings

The Lamont Dharma House is a gathering place for all who seek freedom of mind and heart, located in the Mt. Pleasant neighborhood of Washington, D.C. Our mission is to support people deepening their spiritual practice by offering a space for meditation, yoga, talks, classes, and other events. We aim to grow mindful community in the D.C. area, inspired especially by buddhist and yogic teachings, and we welcome people of all ages, races, ethnicities, sexual orientations, gender identities, disabilities, religions, political views, and socioeconomic backgrounds. 

Potential housemates have an established meditation or yoga practice, and wants to deepen that practice in community with others. They are interested in participating in and helping organize the meditation, yoga, and other events we regularly host in our home. Living in a community like the Lamont Dharma House is a unique opportunity to bring your meditation and/or yoga practice to the center of your life, and to explore how community can support your practice in powerful ways.
