Since 1980 Crystal Mountain Society has held a presence on Galiano Island. Generous donations by members and supporters has allowed us to sustain all our activities. All teaching, retreats, and administration is entirely on a volunteer basis. As is traditional, Buddhist teaching is freely given.
Please consider donating to one of our projects or ongoing funds so that we may continue to offer and expand opportunities for study and practice.
CMS is proposing land use for the establishment of an all-season Forest Retreat Meditation Centre while preserving 75% of the land-base through the transfer of title to the Islands Trust Conservancy. The goal of the Centre is to provide public access to appropriately scaled retreat facilities that will allow retreatants to abide in a forest environment, meeting their most basic needs in simple, low-cost structures with minimal infrastructure.
