Location: #3, 1922 - 9 Avenue SE, Calgary (across from Colonel Walker School in Inglewood)



Santacitta Bhikkhuni

Ayya Santacitta was born in Austria and has a multifaceted background in hotel management, ethnology and avant-garde dance theater. Her first teacher was Ajahn Buddhadasa, who sparked her interest in Buddhist monastic life. She has practiced meditation for 30 years and trained as a nun in both the East and West since 1993, primarily in the lineage of Ajahn Chah. Since 2002 she has also received teachings in the lineage of Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.

Ayya Santacitta is co-founder of Aloka Vihara Forest Monastery, where she has resided since 2009 and took Bhikkhuni Ordination in 2011. She is particularly interested in creating sanctuary close to nature, practicing in community, and bringing wisdom traditions to the environmental movement.

Gather with “Bringing Awareness to Life” to hear this compassionate trailblazer in the rebuilding of a lineage of ordained bhikkhunis. Learn about the Aloka Vihara Sisters on their website and watch this inspiring video about their work and life.
