Winter Retreat 2018
The annual winter retreat begins on January 2, 2018 and lasts for three months, ending on April 1st. During this time, the resident community takes time to engage in more formal meditation practice following a changing schedule of group and individual practice.
During these three months there will be no overnight guests accepted. (For overnight visits after the retreat please contact the monastery after April 1, 2018.) However, day visitors and those wishing to visit the monastery to participate in the meal offering or bring offerings of requisites at meal time are still welcome. It should be noted, however, that the community is practicing noble silence, and talking and conversations with the monastics and retreat crew are very limited.
