construction-of-meditation-facility-truclamIn May of 2009 the Edmonton Buddhist Research Institute was granted a Development Permit by the County of Westlock authorizing the change in use of land for Buddhist practice. The authorities also issued a Building Permit for the construction of the 6000 square foot meditation facility.

Immediately after permit approval a Breaking Ground Ceremony was held and construction of the facility began. It is composed of eight bedroom suites, 10 washrooms, a commercial kitchen, a dinning hall and a large, 2000 square foot Great Hall for meditation and service. The facility was completed at the end of 2009 with occupancy issued at the start of 2010.

This facility was designed and engineered to the latest Alberta Building Code requirements under the leadership of Bearden Engineering Ltd. It includes fire safety implementations, sound barriers between suites, and unobstructed access for people with limited mobility. The Westlock Meditation Center can accommodate large group gatherings and functions for both short and long term stays. Please click here to see photos.

The Meditation Facility is also available for booking at the discretion of the Institute. Buddhist groups, ecologically minded organizations, meditation seminars and practices are some of the groups that this facility would be a great fit for. Please contact us at for more information.

The warmly welcoming Westlock Meditation Center is a haven for peace and serenity. Set on a quarter section of land with more than 20 of its 160 acres covered in trees, this acreage’s therapeutic pastoral setting is designed to be conducive to mindfulness practice and personal reflection. It made the dreams of many come true because for years the collective sangha aspired to have a center for spiritual relaxation and meditation practice in a quiet and serene area remote from busy and hectic urban settings.
The Westlock Meditation Center was made possible with the countless contributions of volunteers and financial support. To make further donations to help with loan repayment, operations, and maintenance, please contact us at The Meditation Center graciously acknowledges all members and volunteers for their financial and in‑kind contributions.
