We are pleased to offer the Metta Meditation Retreat Center and Hermitage Cabins to all seeking a deeper harmony through the practice of meditation and mindfulness. All faiths are welcome.

The center depends on the financial support and generosity of others. In the Buddhist tradition, this is called Dāna  (in Pali: दान), the virtue of generosity. Dāna can take the form of giving to an individual or in more public projects that empower and help many.

Here are some ways you can contribute and support us and the Center!
Please note that all donations are tax deductible.

At All Triple Gem Activities

Bring a generous donation whenever participating in an activity sponsored by Triple Gem of the North. There is always a Dāna basket welcoming your contribution. If you use an envelope and include your name, the monks are able to record and honor your generosity.
