About Us

Our Vision

Bodhivastu for Enlightened Activity is a not-for-profit organization that is engaged in activating world peace.

Our Mission

We feel it is important to create spaces and curriculums designed to reveal the interdependent nature of reality through education that connects individuals and communities to wisdom and wellness.

Bodhivastu accomplishes these aims by offering teachings, practices, major events, activities and retreat opportunities at our three centers.
