All In-Person Events are Currently Postponed

Dear Friends,

Much can change in a few day’s time. As a response to the current public health crisis we have decided to cease all in-person classes and retreats at Aryaloka until further notice. We will keep you all well informed of our re-opening date.

Many of our teachers and volunteers are vulnerable, as well as many who come here regularly. If we act now to limit contact with the virus, we will hopefully be helping in the broader effort to slow the progress of the virus. You can keep up to date with information regarding Covid-19 through these links:  CDC   NHSS    WHO   

If you have booked for an event, we will be emailing you specifically about that booking. Options will include a total refund, transfer of balance to another event, gift certificate or donation.

As you can imagine, this will be a time of financial difficulty for Aryaloka and a difficult time for our sangha. Here’s how you can help Aryaloka and each other: 

  1. Consider booking now on any of our summer retreats – you can learn more about upcoming retreats on our website calendar here. You can also purchase a gift certificate by emailing the center.
  2. Consider making a donation to Aryaloka – you can find the link to our donation page here.
  3. If you’re healthy and would like to help others in need who may need things like groceries brought to them, email Suddhayu at Likewise, if you need assistance let us know and we’ll do our best to arrange help.
  4. Please keep in touch with your friends in the sangha in whatever way is reasonable and safe. If you’re unfamiliar with how to keep in touch online, let us know and we’ll do our best to assist you.
  5. If you’re healthy and would like to volunteer at Aryaloka with yard work or other projects, please be in touch with Suddhayu at 

We encourage you to remember your practice in these difficult times. For some of you this will be a good time to read, reflect, meditate and spend time in nature. For others it may be a time of sickness and healing. And for some of us, it just means working from home. Let’s not forget all who must still work in public, especially those in the medical field, healing arts, and various service industries – they need our kindness and support now more than ever. 

We look forward to seeing you online, and in person when the time is right. Meanwhile, let’s do our best to be mindful and compassionate, help others and take our practice deeper.

With Gratitude and Our Best Wishes ,

Amala, Satyada, and Suddhayu on behalf of the Aryaloka Board
