We encourage you to plan to arrive between 8:00 and 8:30 am on the day, to allow plenty of time to park and settle in before the day begins. (We will be using an off‐site parking lot, and offering a shuttle to the monastery.) Monks and nuns will be on hand to offer an informal program for children ages 6‐12 during the dharma talk and deep relaxation. We appreciate your support by wearing modest clothing that covers shoulders and knees and is suitable for the weather. Shoes that are comfortable for walking and also easy to slip on and off are very helpful.

We look forward to sharing this day with you. Please check our web site for directions, and let us know if you have any questions. The Day of Mindfulness is offered by donation.  Please register to ensure your place.  This event is a fundraiser for Blue Cliff Monastery.  Thank you for supporting the work of the community.
