About Great Tree’s Schedule

Great Tree is open for visitors and guests on  regular schedule around traditional Practice Periods. We do not provide accommodations to the public and require that all follow the temple schedule which begins at 6:00 am. Lights out is at 9:30pm.

We ask that you contact us before you visit so we can be sure someone will be available to meet with you and it will not conflict with our program and retreat schedule.

In the event of bad weather, call for road, driveway and parking conditions.
