There is no registration for the Day of Mindfulness; you just show up. There is no cost incurred for participation in the day, but dana (donation) is greatly appreciated. The monastery provides lunch.
We ask that all guests please wear modest clothing such as shirts that cover the shoulders and midsection and pants or long skirts that cover the knees even while sitting in a meditative posture.
