ABOUT

MISSION STATEMENT:

We warmly welcome both non-vegetarians who are sincerely  interested in exploring vegan food in a friendly, supportive environment; and vegans who already enjoy living a compassionate lifestyle.

It’s our pleasure to  have you as a member of our community while you’re in Vancouver enjoying our beautiful city. We take pride in providing a great clean safe space for both working professionals and international students who wish to have a genuine Canadian Cultural Experience.

Typical stays are 6 months or longer.

We are dedicated to maintaining a high vibration home that’s a peaceful, empowering sanctuary conducive to the arts, meditation, yoga and general rejuvenation.

We have two policies that are the foundation of protecting this peaceful atmosphere:

  1. No animal food products/ingredients this includes all meat/dairy/eggs/fish/chicken.
  2. NO ALCOHOL, DRUGS, WEED, CIGARETTES – NO Smoking 

 

WHO ARE WE?

“May our Wounds be Fertile Ground for Fragrant Flowers to Grow

May our Tears of Sorrow cast Rainbows from Heaven to Earth

May our Heart be a Comforting Refuge for all of Creation

May all of Creation be a Reflection of our Brilliance

May our Noble Path bring Love, Blessings and Grace to All.”
