How to get there

You can check this page to find out how to get to Healing Spring Monastery, including our carpool page.

If you come by car, consider offering someone a ride.

Take into account that buses to Verdelot are rare on Sundays and do not fit very well with the schedules of our Days of Mindfulness. If you cannot come by car, maybe try carpooling.
