Optional Catering and Instruction

We offer catering for groups renting our facility.  We can provide full catering (three meals a day), partial catering (one or two meals a day), or self-catering (renters do their own cooking).  The meals we provide are vegetarian and we ask that self-caterers also cook vegetarian food.  We are happy to provide advice and recipes, if needed.

Our senior meditators can offer instruction in meditation to your group upon request.
