The monastic community will be observing our annual three-month winter retreat from the beginning of January until the end of March, 2019.
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. The community will also continue to gather for Evening Puja, Precepts and a Dhamma Talk from 7–9 p.m. every Saturday evening throughout the retreat, and you are welcome to join in for this as usual. 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. Overnight stays will be accepted from April 1 onwards.
Thank you for your support!
