Located in rural West Virginia, the monastery and meditation center provides opportunities for people to come to organized retreats as well as personal retreats and personal visits of varying lengths. Lay people who are dedicated to the practice of Theravada Buddhism may live at the center in support of the monastery for periods from two weeks to a year or more. There is also the opportunity of novice and full ordination for those interested and qualified.
The meditation we teach follows the broad range of methods taught by the Buddha in the Pali scriptures. Often beginning with concentration on the breath and breath awareness, other techniques are used to calm the mind and gain a deeper awareness into the root cause of our suffering.
