Groups

We work with various international universities and companies, offering motivated groups of up to 30 participants specific programs to taste monastic life. The stay lasts usually around 3 days. Teachers interested in taking their students are asked to prepare their students well in advance on the uniqueness of the monastery, its Theravada lineage and basic Buddhist knowledge (see also publications and social media).

                Also, a specific focus of our teachings and dhamma talks for that group can be discussed with us in advance (e.g. talks and games on leadership or teamwork values).

                If you would like to arrange a group stay in a different format, kindly consult with us.

Overnight stay visitors

Please contact us well in advance by email, stating your motivation and desired period. We will get in touch with you to evaluate the options. During your stay, you will be considered a member of the sangha (i.e. following monastic schedule).

                Kindly note that we offer very basic accommodation and are located on the highway, meaning this experience is for the interested seeker and will not for tourists.

                To cover basic expenses for your stay and the upkeep of the monastery, we will kindly ask you to contribute with a basic donation (currently around 20 USD per person/day).

                If you would like to top this up with an additional donation, we will appreciate it very much, but please do not worry about it if your budget is tight.

Daytime visitors

You can visit the temple (e.g. Medicine Buddha, Vihara, library) from 08.30 A.M. to 05.00 P.M.

                For one of our monastics to show you our premises, there is no need to book an appointment in advance. Simply report to the front desk at the left side.

                If you would like to receive explanations in English or would like to have an appointment with Ven. Dhammananda, kindly schedule this in advance by contacting us a few days in advance by e-mail. Ven. Dhammananda meets visitors between 02.00 P.M.- 04.00 P.M.
