If you are staying at Pema Osel Ling or spending a lot of time there over the weekend, here are some suggested items to bring:

  • sunscreen, sunhat, sunglasses
  • insect repellent (although FYI for any east coasters, CA bugs are not as bad)
  • technu or poison oak lotion (there is some poison oak around)
  • flashlight with extra batteries
  • layered clothing (the weather can range from hot to cool at any time of the year)
  • a blanket or shawl to sit on in the grass
  • walking shoes
  • slip-on shoes (you’ll have to remove your shoes to enter many of the buildings)
  • shower/pool area shoes and a bathing suit
  • cup or mug with a lid, water bottle (we have filtered water on site)
  • cell service exists but can be spotty — if you have urgent calls you can bring a phone card and use the office phone

Note: Pema Osel Ling does not provide computer, fax or copy service. You are welcome to connect to wireless internet in areas near the office. The wifi doesn’t reach to the accommodations or main group areas.

POL’s Bookstore carries a limited supply of emergency items such as sunscreen, etc. We are seven miles from the nearest basic store.

The site is twenty-five minutes from the nearest hospital. If you have any allergies or special medicinal needs, please bring appropriate medication.
