_Amount of personal luggage
Personal closet space is limited so please pack lightly. Walking paths on the grounds are not trolley-friendly; it is better to pack in a rucksack or hand-held luggage. We provide bedding but please bring your own towel.
_Clothing and shoes
The center is located at an altitude of 500m and enjoys mostly a mountain climate. You will always need slightly warmer clothes than in the city or in plains. Bring a warm jacket, robust walking shoes for the woods and outdoor work, convenient put-on/take-off shoes (no shoes inside the houses). Bring umbrella, cap and gloves if coming during winter. And slippers, for indoor work.
The Center has meditation cushions in two sizes, meditation towels and mats. Bring your own cushion if you prefer so. If you use a meditation bench please bring your own. It is always good to bring a light blanket to cover the body during sittings. In wintertime we keep the temperature in the Chan hall at 19 degrees Celsius. Meditation clothes should be loose, comfortable and in darker shades. Please no shorts or sleeveless tops. We serve tea in the hall — bring a small thermos to use there.
Bring biodegradable and non-antibacterial ones. That is how you help us to non-harmfully dispose of sewage waters. Please do not use wet wipes and, especially, do not dispose of them in the toilet. They are plastic.
Žumberak area does not collect waste separately. As we do, we have to transport all our waste 40 km to the nearest recycling yard. We apply the mountaineers’ rule to personal waste — please “leave no trace” and take with you whatever you brought up the mountain. Thank you.
