Temple Forest Monastery
Winter Retreat: January 5–April 1, 2017
The monastic community will be observing our annual three-month winter retreat from January 5 – April 1, 2017.
During this time the monastery is still open for people wishing to offer food or requisites as usual at the 11 a.m. daily meal, or to sit quietly, or to join the pujas when they are scheduled. However, the monastery will not be accepting overnight guests or responding to non-urgent enquiries until April. Also, it should be noted that the community is practicing “noble silence”, and talking and conversations with the monks and retreat supporters are very limited.
The Sunday Meditation Workshops will not be held during the Winter Retreat: they will resume taking place every Sunday beginning again on April 2.
Thank you for your support!
Visitors are welcome, for day visits or (from April–December) for overnight stays.
