Daily and Weekly Schedule

We invite you to join us in our daily schedule of sitting meditation and communal prayer.  People visit the Forest for both short and extended retreats.  We also offer programs and weekend workshops that support contemplative practices.  We look forward to welcoming you to the Forest.


“Forest Day” — We are in silence for the day, and there is no set schedule for prayer or meditation.
*Note: There are no regularly scheduled meals served on Forest Days. Guests are free to help themselves from the food in the refrigerator
