Simple living is practiced and encouraged at Sinh Thuc Meditation Center.  Three types of lodging are available: Single & Double Occupancy bedrooms, Dormitory style bedrooms and Outdoor camping.

            Single & Double Occupancy Bedrooms - There are two bedrooms and a loft that are available for single or double occupancy in the Metta cottage.  Both have accessed to a shared full bath restroom, a small kitchen, and a common area.  The cottage has both air conditioning and heating units. The Metta cottage is a short walk from the Transformation hall where the dining room is located.

          Dormitory Style Bedrooms - The dormitory style bedrooms are located in the Transformation hall.  Male and female participants will be assigned separate sleeping bedrooms. Bedrooms are furnished with bunk beds and shared full bathroom.  We request and appreciate if the younger participants would occupy the upper bunk beds to allow the older participants to take the lower bunk beds.  Each bed will be provided with a pillow, a pillow case and a bed sheet. Due to limited spaces available for luggage in the room, participants are encouraged to bring only the essential items.  Please do not bring any valuable items.  We are not responsible for any personal items that are lost or missing.  In addition, please do not bring any electronics to the Center such as radio, CD player, MP3 player, Game boy, etc.

          Outdoor Camping - Several camp sites are available on the Center ground.  They are nicely situated in the woods within minutes walking distance from the main house for ease of access to the restrooms.  Electricity may also be made available at the camp site by request.
