Daybreak visits the Birken Forest Monastery
The monastery has been drawing people from around the world for years
This morning on Daybreak, we went someplace we've never been before (even though it's just down the highway).
The Birken Forest Monastery, just outside Kamloops, is home to several Buddhist monks and nuns and it's open to the public - who come for personal retreats.
The monastery is up near Roche Lake at the end of a forest service road.
It's isolated and secluded and that's how it's meant to be.
Daybreak's Jennifer Chrumka made the trip, she got a tour and then sat down with abbot Ajahn Sona.
