Finishing & Furnishing

Winter retreat is wonderful, and we are happily inhabiting Chenrezig Hall.

We are using the dining room and kitchen for all meals, male retreatants are esconced in the monks' wing, and the chapel, libraries, work room, and Kuan Yin room are in steady use.

Chenrezig Hall has become the welcoming guest and community space we envisioned.

However, most of the rooms are still empty of furniture. Once we're out of retreat, we'll finish, furnish, and landscape the new building.

Will you help?

Take a look at the wish list of items Chenrezig Hall needs. This list will change as the weeks go by, so keep checking back.
