Buddhayana Forest Retreat

 
Centre description
Buddhayana Forest Retreat is a Buddhist meditation retreat center
beautifully situated in a mixed hardwood forest of Nova Scotia's Cobequid Highlands.
This centre offers temporary monastic style meditation retreats
in the Buddhist ascetic forest tradition of Shakyamuni Buddha; Thai forest monks;
Tibetan mountain yogis and Zen and Taoist hermits.

We have, to date, constructed 16 retreat cabins and a meditation hall. All cabins are self contained while maintaining simplicity and comfort, each individually nestled in quiet forest settings.
Retreatants are expected to cook and generally tend to their own daily necessities. As well as being self directed and seriously motivated with respect to their own individual practice.




 
Dharmic activities
Buddhayana Forest Retreat's vision
will have retreatants gathering to sit group meditation in the Meditation Hall each morning and the remainder of the day is comprised of solitary practice.

Retreatants will also strictly observe the first Ten Buddhist Precepts.

The first three month "Summer Retreat" will commence June 21st 2010.
