Scheduled Dhamma Teachings

Receiving Day Visitors at Cittaviveka

 

Use of the Dhamma Hall

 

Visitors are now welcome to visit limited areas of 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

 

Now that it is British Summer Time, and the clocks have changed, the midday meal offering is at 11.30am.

On weekends and special days the food is offered in the Cloister. 

 

On weekdays, 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

 

The arrangements for people wishing to offer prepared dishes for the meal will remain the same, taking dishes directly to the Cloister tables on weekends and to the kitchen on weekdays. Other offerings of requisites can also be offered at those places or in 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 continue to live stream the weekly guided meditation, as well as the Dhamma talk on the full and new moons.
