Members, friends, and guests are always welcome at Embracing Simplicity Hermitage (ESH) to learn and to meditate. We are exceedingly fortunate to have Venerable Pannavati and Venerable Pannadipa as our resident monks. They are compassionate and wise educators who are dedicated to creating a suitable environment for all practitioners, making the Dhamma available to everyone who seeks it and encouraging them on the Noble Path. They have westernized their teachings to bring the Buddha’s words and wisdom to the lay community. Our monks receive no compensation. They are sustained by dana (offerings).

You can find a schedule of our weekly offerings here.

If you have questions about your personal practice and meditation, please feel free to call or email Venerable Pannavati or Venerable Pannadipa for discussion or for an appointment for personal consultation at
