Barre Center for Buddhist Studies is expanding its capacity with plans to build new residential cottages on its campus.
The first phase of the campaign began late last year with a request to help us build a cottage so that Bhikkhu Analayo could join us in residence this year. That construction is complete: Bhikkhu Analayo spent several weeks here in March and early April, and will return full-time in July when he will be teaching, developing programming and scholarly resources, and supporting our community of teachers, students, and staff.
During the second phase of the project, up to four additional cottages will be constructed to provide additional housing for an increasing number of course attendees, working guests and volunteers, visiting scholars and teachers, self-study retreatants, and staff.
We expect this second phase of construction will cost $385,000. This will cover the improvements to our existing infrastructure and the construction of four additional cottages.
The new cabins will beautifully complement the BCBS aesthetic, and will enhance our ability to fulfill our mission more effectively and with renewed energy.
Checks can be made out to BCBS and mailed to:
