Christmas Eve at the Monastery

All are invited to share a very special Christmas Eve celebration at the monastery, for people of all or no religious background.  We will have a Dharma talk at 3pm, walking meditation at 5pm, dinner at 6pm and an evening of music, stories and poetry starting at 7:30pm.  Come for the day or book a personal retreat to stay with us over the holidays.

We invite our guests to bring desserts and non-alcoholic beverages to share for our Holiday meal. Please help us plan better for food by sending an email to with Christmas Eve in the subject and the number coming to Blue Cliff for the day.

Offerings of dana (donations) are greatly appreciated and may be placed in the donation box in the back of the Meditation Hall.  Your donations will go toward food, utilities and maintenance, and you are welcome to offer what is financially meaningful and possible for you.  We suggest between $10-$20.
