Retreat Cabin Application

Open Dates

The monastery retreat cabin rests on the edge of our 23 acres of forest. Though, just a short walk to the monastery buildings, it has a feeling of a forest hermitage. Equipped with running water, electricity, a small kitchenette with electric stovetop and small refrigerator and a compost toilet it is an ideal location for doing short solo retreat practice.

You will have access to our forest trail system, beautiful meadows and gardens, as well as the privacy for solo meditation and dharma study. The intention of the retreat hut is to provide practice support for those looking to deepen their meditation practice through solo retreat.

We require that everyone who uses the retreat cabin have prior retreat experience, an on-going meditation practice and a guiding teacher.

If you are interested please click the registration button to fill out our online application.

The total cost for use of the retreat hut is $75/night, $350/week.

We require that you arrive on Tuesday afternoon or Friday afternoon between 3P – 5P, and depart on Sunday or Tuesday morning before noon.

We have a cleaning procedure that we ask all retreatants to follow before departure.

Retreatants bring their own food and bedding.

Once we receive your application we will contact you with further information regarding your stay.
