The Bhavana Society - West Virginia
The Bhavana Society is a community of monastics and lay people living according to the precepts and practices laid down by the Buddha, Siddhattha Gotama, over 2500 years ago. The Pali word “Bhavana” means mental cultivation and Bhavana is dedicated to the practice of Theravadan Buddhist meditation which refers to the oldest school of Buddhism.  Located in rural West Virginia, the monastery and meditation center provides opportunities for people to come to organized retreats as well as personal retreats and personal visits of varying lengths.  Lay people who are dedicated to the practice of Theravada Buddhism may live at the center in support of the monastery for periods from two weeks to a year or more. There is also the opportunity of novice and full ordination for those interested and qualified.
