Our England Ave. centre has closed its doors after 12 amazing years. It was a warm and safe meeting place for spiritual practice, contemplation, chanting, rituals, celebrations and meditation. It was also a perfect broadcasting place for our Zoom teachings. We loved this space very much but its basement location had many downsides and due to Covid safety protocols it is no longer suitable as a safe space to meet.
After being closed to the public since March 2020, the Tibetan Bon Buddhist Society’s Board of Directors have decided that it is in everyone’s best interest to close our current physical space.
The England Ave location is now closed and we continue our practice of impermanence.
We open our hearts, knowing that we are all still together both online and spiritually through our weekly Tuesday night practice and teachings on zoom. We are open to the future and all the changes that will move through and around us. The positive piece to this big decision is that we can now focus our energy on growing our building fund and moving forward on finding a warm, bright, quiet and accessible space for our future teachings and retreats. Please join us in manifesting our new future centre. Whether it be property we can own and build on or an in between space to meet up at while we continue working towards our big goal… We dream of one day having a beautiful, spiritual retreat centre for all to visit us at, here on North Vancouver Island to enjoy the wisdom teachings of Geshe YongDong in person.
Geshe La will continue to teach, offering weekly meditation and teachings, specialty talks, and of course our bi-annual retreats. Stay tuned for all up coming events.
