Monashee Institute

Join us to experience our mountain culture and discover your potential.


The Monashee Experience

The Monashee Institute is Rossland's sustainable education program designed to provide opportunites for local talent to deliver courses of interest to locals and visitors - with a focus on edu-tourism.  We want to draw tourists here to learn, visit and enjoy the Rossland experience. Program details are posted on our Courses page.

Courses are designed and delivered by people who live and breathe the Monashee Experience. These folks are subject area experts who are also passionate advocates for the sustainable approach to living that makes our culture thrive and grow. They are eager to share their talents through small class sizes that allow for hands on, experiential learning at every opportunity.

We believe in a co-operative approach. Look for our courses to include a yoga session, a local artist, panels and tours. We spread our workshops around the community's available facilities.
