Calls and Meetings with Monks

If you have questions for one of the Venerables, please keep telephone conversations to a limit as the monks have very busy schedules teaching, making mandalas, and attending to their daily practice. The resident monks and teachers are available to meet privately by appointment with students and members of the public who wish to discuss coursework, Buddhist practice, and personal matters. Contact the office to schedule an appointment.
