Sofia Public Schedule
For Present Schedule Please Visit:
Guided meditation, silent meditation, half-day retreats, and evening prayers
Morning Sits: The morning sits start at 8am. Come and go on the 1/2 hour (8-8:30 and 8:30 to 9am) or stay for the full hour.
These are silent unguided meditations.
Evening Sits: A 10 min. silent meditation followed by verbal prayers and aarti offering (a light offering) with an optional sit of any length following that. Please note after the aarti offering we observe silence until the morning. So please enjoy the silence and feel free to sit in the temple as long as you'd like or walk outside and enjoy the night sky.
A flash light or head lamp is helpful for the evening sits as we have lights out at the end of the sit. Please also note that the use of the house ends at the end of this sit.
