Update on Phased Reopening of Sunyata

From August 17th it will be possible to book to stay overnight as a guest at Sunyata. Due to the strict government regulations we will be operating at a reduced capacity and there will be a variety of measures in place to ensure social distancing and public safety.
Unfortunately we are not open to new guests at this time and it is necessary to have stayed at Sunyata before as a guest outside of retreat time. We hope to be able to open to new guests in the future. To stay as a guest it is necessary to complete a book form, please find further information here.

It is also possible to visit the Dhamma hall and grounds between 9am and 5pm daily Рhowever, booking is essential. Please do not come to the centre without prior booking.

In order to meet our responsibilities regarding public health there are a number of measures we have had to put in place, we request that everyone who visits the centre carefully read the information and complete the booking form here if you would like to visit.

We look forward to welcoming you all back and opening Sunyata again!
