Visiting for the Day

Scheduled Dhamma Teachings

Receiving Day Visitors at Cittaviveka


Use of the Dhamma Hall


Visitors are welcome to visit the monastery from 8:00am until the end of the group practice session that evening, i.e. evening pujas, guided meditations, Dhamma talks and midnight vigils.

We ask people to refrain from visiting the monastery if they are feeling unwell with symptoms of respiratory illnesses.


Sharing the Midday Meal Offering


With the onset of British Summer Time, the midday meal offering is at 11.30am.

Visitors wishing to share in the midday meal will be invited to collect food from the kitchen after the resident community has passed through the food line.


Once visitors have collected their meal, they can either eat in the house or go back outside. 


Making Food Offerings


People wishing to offer prepared dishes for the meal may take their offerings directly to the kitchen. Other offerings of requisites can be offered either in the main house or the Dhamma Hall.


Dhamma Teachings


Guided meditations take place each week on Sunday evenings at 7.30 pm. Dhamma talks are offered on the lunar quarters. You can freely download a calendar showing the lunar days by using this link. We intend to live stream the weekly guided meditation, as well as the Dhamma talk on the full and new moons.
