After many years of planning to create a Missoula presence with many goals including helping students and supporters to connect with the Garden of One Thousand Buddhas, Ewam has opened a new Buddhist Center and Tibetan Store at 180 S. 3rd St. West (above Meadowsweet Herbs and next to Bernice’s Bakery in the hip-strip area of downtown near the river) in April of 2011. The first meditation retreat was held there and taught by Lama Tsomo in early May with wonderful success! Currently with a limited shop featuring lovely Tibetan and Nepalese gifts and special opening times during events like First Friday, the new space also offers open, silent meditation hours every Monday and Tuesday morning from 6:30-7:30am, Wednesday mornings from 7:30-8:30am, and evening guided meditation practices every Thursday evening at 7pm and every Sunday morning at 10am.
Several First Friday events have been held, FREE public talks about Buddhism and other topics, and regular meditation retreats have been offered in the new center so far and the year is filling with other events and activities. Very soon the store will be open for regular hours weekly to be announced. To find out more about the schedule, please see the calendar on this site as well as flyers located on the door of the center. Contact Ewam to inquire about renting the space for your workshop, yoga session, or event or sign up to receive weekly emails! 406.726.0555
