There is no place or time for meditation. Meditation itself is timeless and without location. Look at the word with-out: out of location.
Thinking that being in a monastery will lead you to meditation is an illusion. Sure the energy might be better, and the desire to meditate when going here for this purpose is already strongly there.
But mind will here too find excuses, probably the same excuses as when home: too much distraction, other meditators making sounds, needing time to adjust to the surroundings and wanting to feel the energy, thinking there are more urgent things to do, …
All the while you are procrastinating a simple act of meditation, that at home might only cost you 20 minutes, and now you made a journey of an hour or more in both directions, you will look around inside and outside, probably eat there and have a conference with each other, and maybe spend 60 minutes in a meditation room, out of which you might meditate for about 15 minutes, because the cushions are not comfortable and your behind hurts.
Stuff to think about: Meditation also goes out of mind, although it often starts with an act of the (free) will – will itself being a result of a desire. Meditation wants to silence the mind. Does the desire to meditate reside in the mind? Or does desire activate body and/or mind to get what it wants?
