Hybrid Hybrid Event

Join us for this day of practice. We will participate in walking meditation, listen to a Dharma talk with the Venerable Thay Phước Tịnh (Vietnamese with English translation) and share together in small groups. Advance registration requested. Livestream available on Zoom and YouTube.

This event is In-Person and requires advance registration (at the bottom of the page). If you are not able to join us, the Dharma talk will be live streamed (see Calendar of Online Events for details)

Important Information

If you need to cancel, please use our contact page to email us and let us know as soon as possible, so that other folks have the chance to attend.

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.

    • We usually have a children’s program on the first and third Sundays. If it is available, there will be a link to register the children on the event page.

  1. There was one spot available. I clicked and received the notice “Thank you for your RSVP” Now, the RSVP says “full.” I am assuming I received the last open spot? Thank you
