your own snacks if you have special dietary needs and cannot follow the 6th Precept in the evenings
Avoid bringing personal snacks that require refrigeration, as the Monastery usually doesn’t have extra space in the fridges.
Avoid bringing snacks or supplements that require cooking.
You might bring:
a sun hat
a personal water bottle
You don’t need to bring:
meditation cushions (We have a large and varied supply, but you can bring your own if you want.)
electronic devices such as microwave ovens, hair dryers, and irons. The Monastery has a solar system with limited power. More efficient devices such as smart phones and laptops are okay, but you might consider leaving them behind anyway.
a wardrobe full of clothes as there are no washers and dryers available. There are tubs for hand-washing and clothes lines for drying.
