Request an overnight stay or ask about ordination

If inquiring about an overnight stay please use this contact form below to make your inquiry. We do ask, however, that you read through the website thoroughly before asking any questions.

Please note that first time guests may stay for up to one week if coming from Northern California, up to ten days if coming from Southern California or out of state, or two weeks if coming from outside the country. Please also keep in mind that we do not make reservations more than two months in advance of your requested date of stay due to our experience of receiving more cancellations when bookings are made beyond two months out.

When writing to request an overnight stay, please include the following information: your phone number (cell phone preferred), age, and gender, if you have any physical restrictions or mental health conditions of any kind and what medications you take for these, where you are traveling from and briefly describe your experience with: meditation, following precepts, previous stays in a monastery and whether you can commit to follow our daily schedule as well as the Eight Precepts while staying here (especially not eating food in the afternoon).

Please do not arrive at Abhayagiri expecting to stay overnight unless you have made a reservation with the guestmonk.

Thank you for your consideration,
The Abhayagiri Saṅgha
