Staying at the Center
Onsite accommodation is available for those attending courses or for those who wish to come and take a break. You do not need to attend a course to stay at the center. The center is open to guests throughout the year. Rooms are available subject to availability.
The center offers simple accommodation and home cooked vegetarian meals at reasonable rates. The staff are mostly volunteers committed to providing service to the public to exemplify their Buddhist faith.
Updated August 6, 2021:
- We are asking all residents and guests to wear masks (covering both nose and mouth fully) in all common areas of the houses and center buildings.
- When entering the Temple, World Peace Cafe, and Shop, everyone should wear a mask until they are either seated in the Temple or in the Cafe. In the cafe, please just take off your mask to eat or drink. In the meditation, you are welcome to take off your mask once seated.
- Please refrain from chanting prayers out loud.
- Volunteers who are serving food in the dining room or helping in the cafe and shop should wear masks.
- In the dining room, please wear your mask until you are seated and eating.
- As much as possible, please try to eat outside–both in the dining room and the cafe.
- In the interest of the safety of everyone who attends, as an organization we strongly request that unvaccinated individuals don’t stay in dorm or shared accommodations because face coverings cannot be worn and proper social distancing cannot be maintained in these spaces, but instead book private/single rooms, camping or offsite accommodations.
