In-person Day of Mindfulness: Registration Required

August 1 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm PDT

We are happy to announce that registration for the in-person Day of Mindfulness is here! We kindly ask all visitors to register using the link below:

Register for this Day of Mindfulness

If registration is full, please try again later. There is no waiting list, but spaces become available when there are cancellations. Please sign up by 9 AM on the day prior to the Day of Mindfulness as registration will close completely 24 hours prior to the event.

Our hope is to enjoy the Day of Mindfulness 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.

In addition, we now require that you bring a face mask. Masks are required at all indoor activities, including listening to the Dharma talk, attending the recitation ceremony, and using the public restrooms.

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 walk up the paved road. The Day of Mindfulness can begin as we make our first steps into 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).

      Dear Louise, thank you for the inquiry. There is no waiting list for the Day of Mindfulness, but we encourage you to check the registration link from time to time. As people cancel, spaces will become available. We tend to receive multiple cancellations on Thursday and Friday before a Sunday event. However, registration does close 24 hours before the Day of Mindfulness starts, which is usually Saturday at 9 AM. Good luck.

      Yes, our Sunday Day of Mindfulness is indoors for the dharma talk portion. Our walking meditation is outdoors and eating is outdoors.

    I live in California now! in Bakersfield, but closer to the monastery than when I was in AZ. I am wondering if it would be possible to drive down on a Saturday and sleep over on the land so I would be there and well rested for the day of mindfulness. Otherwise I will look at the schedule for a weekend only retreat. It is about a four hour drive from here (not counting LA traffic) and I am working full time. Just starting to look at options, thanks.

      Thank you for the question. Right now we aren’t having an overnight stay unless it’s part of a retreat.
