Temple Forest Monastery
Winter Retreat 2018
The monastic community will be observing our annual three-month winter retreat from January 3–March 31, 2018.
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 morning and evening pujas at 5 a.m. and 7 p.m. 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 opportunities to speak with the monks and retreat supporters are limited.
There will be no Sunday Meditation Workshops until April. However, beginning again on January 20, the community will gather each Saturday for Evening Puja, Precepts and a Dhamma Talk from 7–9 p.m., and you are welcome to join in for this as usual.
Thank you for your support!
Visitors are welcome, for day visits or (from April–December) for overnight stays.
