Please use this page to contact the monastery. We do ask, however, that
you read through the website thoroughly before asking any questions.
In addition, before contacting Abhayagiri, please take note of the following:
to a high volume of emails, we are unable to respond to general
questions about Buddhism whether these concern school projects, college
research or are of general interest. Short, specific questions about our
monastery and tradition, however, are welcome.
- We are not able to provide spiritual or pastoral counseling via email or telephone.
- If inquiring about an overnight stay please use this contact form to make your inquiry. We do not accept overnight guests during the months of January, February and March.
keep in mind the following notes concerning overnight stays: First time
guests may stay for one week if coming from northern California, ten
days if coming from southern California or out of state, or two weeks if
coming from outside the country. We encourage first time guests to stay
for at least three nights.
- For April 1st - Dec. 24th : When writing to request an overnight stay, please
include your age, gender, physical restrictions of any kind, where you
are traveling from and briefly describe your experience with meditation,
following precepts, previous stays in a monastery and information about
any medication you take for physical or mental well being. If you are easily accessible by phone, it may also be helpful to provide us with your phone number.
Please do not make reservations more than two months in advance of the date you wish to arrive.
receiving your reservation request we will usually respond within five
days. During early April the responses may take somewhat longer due to a
high number of inquiries.
Finally, we ask that you please do not request a reservation unless you have a sincere commitment to follow through.
Thank you for your consideration,
The Abhayagiri Saṅgha
