Please join us for a special Afternoon of Mindfulness. We love offering the dharma to friends who are able to physically visit Deer Park and we offer such activities as walking meditation, a dharma talk, mindful eating, and a be-in. . This event usually fills up due to limited space, so be sure to register in advance so you can attend. And if your circumstances change, please cancel your reservation so others may take advantage of the Great Hidden Mountain.
Please register by 8 AM on the day of the event. If you need to cancel, please login again on this page and indicate you are not attending.
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.

Lotus flower blooming in my heart to know my son and I can share this time with you all.
My daughter and I would love to participate. Can we please join the mindfulness program on Christmas eve?
We just opened up a few more spots.
Will the book shop be open today? I’d like to purchase a cushion if possible. I am looking forward to sharing the energy today.
I am not sure if it will be open today, but it is likely to be open after the Dharma talk.
