The Hermitage will not be hosting residential retreats until further notice. Some of our teachers have generously offered to support our community with online video conference teachings. This model has been quite successful and we will continue to explore it and to update the community as new online courses become available. Please register by completing the online course registration form. Registered participants will be emailed detailed course descriptions and Zoom meeting links. Participants are advised to download the Zoom app at and to familiarize themselves with the platform beforehand. Please note that registrations will be closed 24 hours in advance of course start times. All start times are Pacific Time.

Fees  All online programs are $10 per day (non-refundable). We realize that this is a very challenging time financially for many and no one will be turned away for lack of funds. Please email us if your circumstances require a discounted online course fee. Fees go towards covering the centre’s expenses only, not to teachers.

Dana For Teachers  In Buddhist traditions teaching is given freely and dana is an expression of your appreciation. The teachers do not receive any financial support from the Hermitage, so please give as generously as you are able. We request that donations be given by means of e-transfer to email addresses provided by the teachers or through teachers’ PayPal accounts.
