Birken in Kamloops has come to an end...

Like all things in this life, our gatherings in Kamloops are also impermanent. Last year Ajahn Sona made the decision to step away from all travel in his teachings. That decision is now extending to Kamloops as well. Our Birken in Kamloops gathering in June 2018 was the final one.

Ajahn Sona's aspiration to bring the Dhamma to more and more people via his YouTube Channel requires his mindful attention to the details of these Dhamma talks, as well as his presence at Birken for these high quality video recordings to reach a global audience. Coupled with this creative intention is also his desire to spend more time at the monastery.

This opens up a tremendous opportunity for all of you to now visit us at Birken, whether it be for a day visit, to offer a dana meal, or come for a Personal or Scheduled Retreat. Information about all of these ways to be a part of Birken can be found at our Book a Visit page.

Also in the coming weeks we will be combining the Birken in Kamloops mailing list with our main Birken Forest Monastery mailing list. Should you wish to unsubscribe at anytime, just click on the "unsubscribe from this list" link at the bottom of these newsletters.

We look forward to welcoming you soon to Birken Forest Monastery.

May you all be well, happy, and peaceful.
