Reopening for In Person Retreats

Dear Dharma Friends,

We will resume in-person retreats starting April 2022!

For those looking to join us in-person starting in April these are our new Covid-19 Measures of Safety:

In response to the ongoing pandemic and to assure the safety of our staff, volunteers, and retreat particpants we will now require all guests who are going to stay overnight with us:

  • Take a COVID PCR test with a negative result, within 3 days before arriving at our center.
  • You must be fully vaccinated (boosted also preferred but not required
  • If you have any symptoms of covid-19 please stay home and notify us.
  • A one day retreat where you do not stay overnight does not require a PCR test.

We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

On our campus we require all particpants to wear a mask. Wearing a mask while on the meditation cushion is optional. We have no-touch thermometers and finger-pulse oximeters for monitoring health conditions.

The law of impermanence assures us that the pandemic will eventually pass. But for now please join us in taking every safeguard to protect the health of everyone while continuing to practice the Dharma.

We hope to see you online or in-person soon !


With Joined Palms,

Dharma Drum Retreat Center
