Make a Donation
All of our weekly classes at Triratna Vancouver are offered for free. While our team of volunteers is happy to lead classes, there are certain costs associated with running our programs. While we currently do not have a permanent location, we do occasionally rent spaces for our sessions. Additionally, we hope to have a permanent location again in the future.
The word dana means generosity, and is a central Buddhist principle and practice. If you find our programs helpful, and have the means to do so, we would be forever grateful for any dana you wish to give. We are a registered charity, and would be happy to provide a tax receipt for your support.

Triratna Pacific Northwest Regional Retreat
April 13-16, 2023
On this retreat we will delve into the dharma teaching:
Body like Mountain
Breath Energy like the Ocean’s Waves
Heart Mind like the Sky
These verses are a simple pointing to the awakening and freedom ready to be discovered, here, in our present embodied experience. In the Tibetan Buddhist tradition these are known as the “Three Naturals” and are an invitation to come home to the stability and support of the body, befriend the cycles of physical and emotional energy natural to being human, and recognize and relax into to the boundlessness of awakened heart and mind.
