If reservations have sold out, you may check back with the registration link. As long as there are more than 24 hours before the Day of Mindfulness, spaces will become available as cancellations are received.
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 share this information with anyone attending the event with you.
The Day of Mindfulness starts with a walking meditation gathering at 9 AM. As you arrive to our main parking lot, please enjoy your steps up the paved road. Our Day of Mindfulness can begin as we make our first step in Deer Park, allowing our body to relax, bringing our attention to our feet, letting go of anxiety and stress. Our gathering location will be on your right as you walk up the main road, nestled in under the oaks and pepper trees, close to the campground shower block (see map).
If it is your FIRST TIME to a Day of Mindfulness with us, monastic Dharma Teachers will offer you an introduction to our practice, after the walking meditation, in the same area.
