IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Please register by 8 AM on the day of the event. If you need to cancel, please reply to the confirmation email you receive.

Our hope is to enjoy this time together in a way that keeps everyone healthy. For admittance, please be prepared to share your CDC card upon arrival showing complete COVID-19 vaccination. This means that at least 2 weeks will have passed between your second vaccination shot (if you received the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine) or your single vaccination shot (if you received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine) and the day you are scheduled to attend.

We ask for your understanding when we say that if you cannot provide a record of complete vaccination, you will not be allowed to enter the monastery. This requirement applies to every person who wishes to attend, regardless of age. Thank you in advance for your cooperation. 

In addition, we now require that you bring a face mask. Masks are required at all indoor activities, including listening to the Dharma talk, attending the recitation ceremony, and using the public restroom. 

In addition, we ask that all guests please observe our dress code: out of respect for our monastic brothers and sisters, please wear sleeves that cover the shoulders (short sleeves are acceptable), shirts that cover the midriff, and long pants or long skirts that are loose-fitting and cover the knees at all times. Please do not wear shorts, tank tops, nor tight-fitting clothing. We kindly ask friends to dress modestly for the duration of their time with us and to share this information with anyone attending the event with you. 

There is no cost incurred for participation in the Day of Mindfulness, but a donation is greatly appreciated to keep the monastery open and able to receive guests. You will find donation boxes in the meditation and dining halls or you can donate online.

Scheduled events occur rain or shine.

  1. Hello, is it possible to check in at 11am? I have something in the morning and cannot make it until that time.

    • Unfortunately, we don’t have anyone to cover the gate past 10am so that everyone can fully enjoy the dharma talk.

  2. For the 3/6/2022 DOM event, will we have the option of lunch at the monastery (for purchase?) or should we bring our own lunch? Thanks in advance.

  3. Hello,
    I reserved two spots for my partner and I for March 6, however something has come up and we must cancel. How do I cancel so that the two spots can become available again?
    Thank you,
    Anna
