Triple Gem of the North is pleased to offer the Metta Meditation Retreat Center and Hermitages 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.
Ways to Give
There are several ways you can contribute and support the Center.
