Coronavirus Measures

Update on Phased Reopening of Sunyata

** Because of Level 3 restrictions, we are currently asking that only people from within the county come to the centre. Pujas are also closed to the public during this time – they will continue to be streamed online. It is still possible to come as a day visitor or overnight guest, in line with the guidelines below.

Day Visits

It is possible to visit the Dhamma hall and grounds for a day visit.  Booking is essential.

Please find further information and complete a booking form here if you would like to visit during the day

Overnight volunteer stays

It is possible to stay overnight and volunteer at the centre.

Unfortunately, we are not open to new guests at this time.  In order to visit overnight it is necessary to have stayed at Sunyata within the last two years as a volunteer outside of retreat time, or to be very familiar with the daily routine at Sunyata.

Please find further information and complete a booking form here if you would like to stay overnight. 


We look forward to welcoming you all back at Sunyata again!
