Closed for Winter Retreat: January - March 2018

Birken is now closed for our annual Winter Retreat, the time of year when monastery duties wind down and a more tranquil atmosphere infuses each moment. Now is when the monastics, residents, and a few guests turn our attention towards personal meditation practice amidst a landscape
of snow and all encompassing silence.

We will respond to emails again starting in April. Registration for 2018 Personal Retreats, Day Visits, and most of our Scheduled Retreats will open around
April 1, 2018. Please see our Event Calendar and Book a Visit pages for more information in the coming months.

If you would like to be notified when registration opens,
please subscribe to our newsletter.

May your winter be filled with boundless peace and joy.
