Visting Birken: Spring Re-opening
Updated: January 18, 2023
Birken offices are closed for Winter Retreat January 1 – April 15, 2023.
After a busy year of work projects, the Birken offices are now closed for Winter Retreat. Information regarding 2023 Personal Retreats, Day Visits, Dana Meals, and Scheduled Retreats will be forthcoming at that time.
After a three year closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic as well as renovations on the building and grounds, Birken Monastery plans to re-open to the public for retreats and visits beginning May 1, 2023. We will begin with the return of our annual Pacific Hermitage 14-day Retreat. This is a closed retreat, however….following this retreat, we hope to restore the opportunity for both formal retreats and informal visits to the monastery, beginning in late spring 2023.
Precise details of our re-opening will be available following our Winter Retreat.
