We are pleased to be able to offer accommodations for those wishing to practice at Sanshin-ji, consisting of a bed in a shared room, in an apartment adjacent to the temple recently rented by Sanshin. Of course, camping on the temple grounds or sleeping in the zendo will still be an option for those who prefer it.
The charges for accommodations at Sanshin-ji are as follows:
1. Bunkbed in shared room in apartment: $20 per night, $120 per week, $360 per month.
2. Camping on temple grounds or sleeping in the zendo/office: No charge during retreats. Otherwise, $7 per day or one hour work exchange per day.
All visits must be pre-approved by our Abbot. Visits of 3 or more days will need visitor forms filled out as part of the approval process.
Registered guests will be received by our dorm caretaker or an assigned substitute. When making your reservations, please leave a phone number you may be reached at in case of last minute changes, such as arriving later than intended; a cell phone number would be best. Plan to arrive before 8 pm, due to our early morning schedule.
The dormitory is located in an 2 building, 4 apartment, complex adjacent to Sanshin grounds. The driveway to the dorm is the first drive directly north of Sanshin driveway. (Heading along Olive Street toward Hillside.) Follow the drive to the back, the dorm is located in the furthest back building of the two, and on the left hand side. There is very limited parking in front of the dorm, but there will likely be parking at the temple two forward parking areas. You may park in front of the dorm to unload luggage, then move your car to the Sanshin parking area. You may access the dorm from the temple: follow the stone path to the right of the Temple entry steps. Temple entry is the right hand side door on the building.
