Please plan to attend the entire retreat, as talks and activities build upon one another and, as our sense of safety is essential, it is important for retreatants to meet one another at the start of the retreat.
To get the maximum benefit from your time on this retreat, we highly suggest that you participate from a private space. Consider treating yourself to a couple of days away at a hotel or retreat center.
