In-person Day of Mindfulness: Registration Required

July 4 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm PDT

We are happy to announce that registration for the in-person Day of Mindfulness is here! Please sign up by 9 AM on the day prior to the Day of Mindfulness as registration will close 24 hours prior to the event. We kindly ask all visitors to register using the link below:

Register for this Day of Mindfulness

Our hope is to enjoy this time together in a way that keeps everyone healthy. For admittance, please be prepared to share your CDC card showing complete COVID-19 vaccination. This is a requirement that applies to every person wishing to attend. We thank you in advance for your cooperation.

For reasons of safety, the monastery is unable to offer lunch to our day visitors on this day. We kindly ask all day visitors to bring their own vegetarian lunch in compostable packaging.

The in-person 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. The 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 under the oak 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 of the campground.
