We also welcome meal offerings during Winter Retreat ~ if you would like to offer a meal for the nuns, please get in touch with the Vihara Steward at <retreatresponse@gmail.com> or call 530-647-8262 and leave a message.

Please be aware that the nuns and resident supporters will be observing Noble Silence during this time, but you are most welcome to stay for the meal and meditate in the shrine room.

Thinking of you and sharing much metta!
