Six week Whole Community Retreat at the Dhammadharini Monastery

January 15th until February 26th 2018.

During this time our residents will be cutting out our usual outside activities and internal projects and be focusing on meditation and Dhamma teachings at the Monastery in Penngrove. We will have no alms rounds during this time. We will all be maintaining silence as much as possible.

Ways to participate:

Day visitors welcome to come for meditation and/or to offer a meal. Come for all or part of a day. 

You may arrange to offer prepared fresh meal in person by contacting the monastery. Groceries or frozen dishes to be offered later are also extremely helpful. From 12-1, daily you may pick a chore and help with cleaning the monastery. Your support makes the work light and gladdens the whole community.
