About Dave Gordon

Dave Gordon was born in Wyoming. He grew up in eastern Washington State, graduating from a Jesuit high school and later a Jesuit university.

After leaving the Catholic Church in the late 1960s, it took him thirty years of searching to discover a spiritual practice that made sense to him. As the new millennia arrived, he began visiting Zen monasteries, and was lay-ordained a Zen Buddhist monk in 2011. Dave continues his personal practice and studies with a local teacher.

After forty years Dave retired from mountaineering, although he still enjoys alpine backpacking and the occasional mountain “scramble”. He was a climber on the North Ridge 1995 Mt. Everest Expedition, an independent expedition organized by the climbing team.

In 1990, he helped drag the bodies of two teammates and a Sherpa off Manaslu, the eighth highest mountain in the world. The incident on the “Mountain of the Spirit” changed his spiritual path forever.
