 New location for Dhammadharini Monastics (Bhikkhunis)

Dhammadharini Support Foundation has purchased a property to be repurposed for a Buddhist monastic residence for women and a sanctuary for meditation and Dhamma study for friends from the broader community.   There are lots of opportunities to help with this transition.

Spend a few hours, a day, or a weekend with the Dhammadharini monastic community helping with necessary preparation for the move in and grand opening.  Offer a meal or a ride.  Come on your own or with your meditation group or friends and family.

Most immediate ways to help

  • Preparation for painting.
  • Painting and plastering interiors with natural clay products and no VOC paints.
  • Minor electrical and plumbing repairs
  • Minor carpentry work
  • Gardening and yard work (the residence is situated on one and a third acres)

    • Remove trash and plant matter and building material
