What we're about

We are committed to building a responsible learning community. We do this through emphasizing respect, integrity, and generosity. As a learning community, we are interested in increasing awareness of ourselves and the world we live in. We are interested in how spiritual teachings can be integrated into our modern lives independent of anyone's individual belief system. Making time for collaborative learning, we get energized by this mutual enriching processes. We offer basic meditation instructions, inquiry practice, mindfulness classes for youth, day long and non residential retreats and classes adult classes on various themes. For more information on these, please see Web of Connection, www.webofconnection.com

Ayya Dhammadhira (Sr. D) enjoys facilitating groups that are alive with genuine inquiry.

The community is open to all who are interested or curious to come through the door. No one is expected to adopt belief systems. Together, through respect, integrity and generosity we support each other.

Your support helps not only to maintain the existing structures and the basic needs of non-salaried teachers but also, it enables our community to grow so that it can become a place where we all can find nourishment in many ways. Our overall goal is to develop a community center with permaculture gardens, a teaching hall, and energy efficient residences for teachers, guests and interns.
