Hi Yasodhara,

Welcome! I only recently discovered this site and have already gained alot from it, sure you will too! You probably already know this, but one of the senior monks at Bodhinyana monastery in Western Australia, home of Ajahn Brahmavamso, is a Norwegian: Ajahn Brahmali. I have listened to all his uploaded Dhamma talks and find them exceptionally good - He really impresses me with his knowledge and understanding of the Dhamma (not to mention his astoundingly good English). I know he paid a visit to norway recently and did some talks there. So, this would seem to indicate that there are some good theravada groups operating in Norway. Maybe someone on 'Dhamma wheel' will be able to point you in the right direction of one?
