Tết! It’s New Year’s Eve for the year of the Cat. For our evening of mindfulness, we will have Year-End Dharma Talk (Bình Thơ Cuối Năm) by Sister Uyển Nghiêm, a be-in (performances), and the lunar new year ceremony. Please join us.
This event is In-Person and requires advance registration and an account on our website.
Please register by 8 AM on the day of the event. If you need to cancel, please reply to the confirmation email you receive.
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.
