"I am, therefore you are. You are, therefore I am" ~ Thich Nhat Hanh

A Quiet Place Molalla is a working farm, with a tree sanctuary, fruit orchard, and interfaith spiritual residence.


We are a community of mindfulness practitioners, in the tradition of Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh. We welcome you to the Sangha, our beloved community.


AQPM is a 501C3 religious nonprofit. While our daily practice is rooted in the Buddhist tradition and lineage of Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh, visitors practicing other spiritual traditions are wholeheartedly welcome. During our first two years of operation, we enjoyed hosting friends for day visits, overnights, special weekend work-study gatherings and resident work-study groups.


AQPM is a registered Sangha with the Unified Buddhist Church, a member of the Nonprofit Association of Oregon, the Oregon Small Woodland Management Association, the Home Orchard Society, and the Clackamas County Farm Forest Association.

A Quiet Place by Kathleen Braza

A door mindfully crafted with love
Welcomes your Spirit here.

Sacred space opens

Tranquility whispers

The work of many hands and hearts
Offers comfort and respite

The silence blesses

It is safe

A temporary nest

No judgments, no shoulds
Hiding in tiny corners

It is for you alone

Refuge, Harbor, Sanctuary

Peace

And perchance a gift
Or a blessing

Grace for the journey
