The spirit of the WCCM is that of a “monastery without walls”. We are an international community held together by the practice of meditation, but fellowship thrives even more when people can spend time together in the same place.
Bonnevaux will be a still point at the centre of our vibrant community, a home for our teaching and our teacher, and a place for members to spend time together in silence and fellowship.
