Arrow River Forest Hermitage needs stewards

Ajahn Punnadhammo, the abbot of Arrow River Forest Hermitage, is looking for a steward to stay at his monastery. The hermitage is located in Northern Ontario, 50 miles southwest of Thunder Bay, with 92 acres of land in a beautiful mixed forest.


This year Ajahn is short handed after having had some cancellations of stewards. If interested, please write to him at


As a small hermitage in a non-Buddhist country, Arrow River operates by dependence on a lay steward who lives there and takes care of the duties which monks cannot. This is an opportunity to live at the center for an extended period of time and to serve the Triple Gem. The duties are not time consuming and leave ample time for study and meditation.
