Hi everyone

I am a middle-aged guy from near Toronto, Canada. I have been maintaining a solo practice for 4 or 5 years that consists of daily meditation and Sutta readings, listening to Dhamma talks and reading books in the Thai Forest tradition, and occasional solo retreats. I practiced Zen intensely for about 5 years around the year 2000 but feel more drawn to Theravada. I feel the absence of a Sangha in my life and practice and am hoping this place can help me make a few Dhamma friends or least give me an opportunity to explore Buddhist topics with other people who practice.

Hi Anthony, and welcome. There is a very nice Monastery in Perth, Ontario - not terribly far from Toronto - which I have visited before. Ajahn Viradhammo is the Abbot there. It is a nice place. People can also visit, offer alms, hear talks, do meditation, etc. You might find some like-minded people there.

Here is the website:

Best wishes,
