What To Bring

 

Please download this page with its checklist:    What To Bring

Clothes:

 

  • Loose fitting, warm clothes. (Please, don't bring 'noisy' clothes of some modern material.)
  • The mean temperature is held at 19 degrees centigrade.
  • Enough clothing for up to two weeks.
  • Only meditators staying over two weeks will be able to use the washing machine.
  • You can, of course, wash your clothes by hand any time.
  • Outdoor wear to guard against the often inclement Welsh weather.

 

Important

Please dress modestly: 'not to use clothing that reveals or emphasises the person's figure' OED

For example: women - wear long skirts and loose fitting trousers over leggings; men - when hot not to wear shorts or just vests, but loose fitting shirts

Our attitude should respect the vow of celibacy we all take.

 

Bedding:

  • Bring 2 sheets (or 1 fitted sheet and duvet cover) and 2 pillow cases. This saves us time and cost.
  • We supply duvets that normally cover all season but, if you know yourself to be sensitive to cold, please bring an extra sleeping bag or blanket/duvet.
  • Earplugs just in case…

 

Toiletry:

  • Bring everything you need - we will supply soap.
  • Please do not bring perfumes, after shaves or scented ointments.
  • If you use ointments and creams, make sure they are not scented e.g . E45
  • We have installed a bidet in the bathrooms. The hope is that we stop throwing as many trees as we do in the form of paper down the toilet.

 

Valuables:

Do not bring anything of great value with you. Satipanya cannot recompense any property lost or damaged.

 

What Not To Bring

 *alcohol, recreational drugs. Habitual smokers may smoke off property.  *musical instruments, radios, mp3 players and ipods;  *jewellery and valuables;     *cosmetics, including scented creams, etc  *‘noisy’ clothes;      *dogs, cats, pet ferrets or any other cuddly creature.

If you cannot resist the mobile, hand it in to the office.
