Guests visit for a few hours, a few days, or even a few months.

Check out the Event Schedule to explore scheduled courses.

Or come live in community and offer service at other times. Join us to learn, practice, and live the Dharma.

Visiting is by appointment.

A short application form is required for overnight stays. Visits of four days or more require a longer application form.

When you come to Sravasti Abbey, you are a guest in our home.  And because we are a monastery—not a retreat center or Dharma center—things may be different than what you are used to.

If you read this section thoroughly, you’ll be well prepared for a visit.
