Exploring Monastic Life at Sravasti Abbey

Northwest USA  

August 4, 2014toAugust 20, 2014

Newport, WA

Bhikshuni Thubten Chodron teaches from her 37 years of experience as a monastic. In addition to receiving daily teachings, you’ll be living and practicing as a member of the Sravasti Abbey community — engaging in meditation, discussion, and offering service to the community.

This retreat is for qualified laypeople exploring the possibility of ordination, and for monks and nuns who have been ordained for five years or less. Applicants must have taken refuge in the Three Jewels at least one year ago and must not be in a long-term relationship. Priority will be given to applicants under 50 years of age.

A dana offering and registration form are requested to reserve your place for the retreat.

Retreatants should arrive by 5:00 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 4 and stay through lunch on Wednesday, Aug. 20.
