Our vision is to sustain and advance the teachings and practices as taught by the Buddha whereby monastics and laypeople cultivate skillful means to realize true happiness.

We will host monks from Metta Forest Monastery (Wat Metta), San Diego County, USA, whose Abbot is Taan Ajaan Geoff (Ṭhānissaro Bhikkhu), on Vancouver Island near Victoria, BC. The monks will practice in line with the Dhamma and Vinaya (training rules) taught by the Buddha over 2500 years ago. There will be opportunities for the public to participate by offering food, receiving teachings, and attending group meditation sessions.  As well, we organize day-long teachings offered by Taan Ajaan Geoff.
