About Spanning 35 serene acres, offering a tranquil space for meditation and Buddhist studies, the monastery's commitment to sustainability shines through its use of eco-friendly materials like cross-laminated timber (CLT) and long-span glulam beams, earning it the 2022 Green Building of the Year award from the Colorado Green Building Guild.
