Practice Residency Retreats
Students wishing to dedicate more time to their practice and engage with sangha may schedule a practice residency. This includes lodging at the monastery and participating in all of the daily forms. These are scheduled based upon the student’s availability as well as monastery lodging availability.
Our Annual Retreats are great opportunities to build relationships in Sangha. Anyone is welcome to participate for any portion of the retreats we offer. We do encourage full-day participation. All normal programming is suspended with the exception of As It Is Meditation (Weekdays at 6pm) and Dharma talks (Wednesday 8:11pm and Sunday at 11:11am).
