About Willow Monastic Academy

Willow Monastic Academy is a training centre dedicated to developing the capacities of the human mind. We engage in rigorous mental, ethical, and interpersonal practices grounded in ancient Buddhist traditions. Our goal is to create leaders who are an unstoppable force for justice and peace in the world. 

Willow believes the world needs wisdom training rooted in deep community. We are:

  • a place of refuge in a world facing crisis, to be surrounded by friends to heal and find your unique calling;
  • a modern wisdom institution teaching an ecology of practices to unleash and nourish the latent capacities of the human mind, heart and spirit;
  • part of cultivating a network of trustworthy leaders around the world, who act in service of preserving all aspects of life on Earth.

As a patreon community supporter, you will have first access to Willow's online events, from training courses to group meditations. You will also have access to Willow's growing library of training resources to guide your practice.


The Spirit of Dana in the Gift Economy:

Willow Monastic Academy exists through the gift economy, informed by the Buddhist practice of dana — meaning to give freely without expecting anything in return. We hope that you donate to Willow because you believe that it should exist in the world, supported through this spiritual practice of generosity.

We encourage you to listen to the video above and practice with our 5-minute contemplation on how your values inform your actions towards a world worth loving. 

As a community, Willow aims to make our teachings and offerings accessible to everyone, regardless of whether you can gift us a dollar or thousands of dollars. We have set the donation tier at $1/month, but encourage you to reflect on and make custom pledge ($1+) in alignment with what you feel moved to give.

If you do choose to support Willow, choose gladly, and give freely.
