We build upon and give witness to the teachings and practices of the Buddha
Shakyamuni and Buddhist meditation masters. We endeavor to assist in, and facilitate, a
peaceful and compassionate co- creative conscience evolution as it relates to
contemporary humanity, culture and nature. Our intentions are:
To study and practice the meditation and contemplative methods of the forest and
wilderness meditation Masters within the Buddhist tradition.
To further the awareness and benefits of silence and solitude in a forest mountain
environment: the spiritual, psychological, creative, philosophical and physical benefits of
a wilderness forest retreat practice – individually, socially and culturally.
To teach approaches and practices of an altruistic transformative spirituality - assisting
practitioners in cultivating and stabilizing an enlightened consciousness.
To model a creative and sustainable environment
To foster and encourage integral studies and practices..
