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: The months of May and June 2022 no longer have any vacancies for new guests. If you have never stayed as an overnight guest before, you are welcome to ask about open July dates.

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. We do not make reservations more than two months in advance of the requested date of stay.

When writing to request an overnight stay, please include your phone number (cell phone preferred), 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 any information about medication you take for physical or mental well being.

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
