Exploring Monastic Life

July 30 @ 5:00 pm - August 16 @ 2:00 pm PDT

Layman and nuns outdoors with prayerful hands.

A Study and Community Experience

with Ven. Thubten Chodron and the Sravasti Abbey Community

Exploring Monastic Life is for qualified lay people exploring the possibility of ordination, and for monks and nuns that have been ordained for five years or less.

Bhikshuni Thubten Chodron teaches from over 40 years of experience as a monastic. In addition to receiving daily teachings, you will live and practice as a member of the Sravasti Abbey community—engaging in meditation, discussion, and offering service with the community.

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 old.

Read the detailed program description.

Apply by completing the longer application form.

All programs are offered on a donation basis. To gather the resources for the course to happen, we ask participants to collect the donations to support it. Each person should raise or contribute at least $475 USD.

Arrive by 5:00 pm on Monday. Program ends after lunch on August 16.
