We welcome overnight guests. There is space for up to three women guests in a separate building with a dormitory. A sense of privacy is created with the use of room dividers. Our comfortable trailer is a private space, available for individual use for men or transgender people. The minimum duration for staying at the vihara is one week. We ask guests to arrive between Wednesdays and Sundays, from 8 am to 6 pm. To arrange a stay, please contact us at <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
