Note about Mandatory Orientation Session
The Friday Evening Orientation session is mandatory. We cover important logistical information, health care, share contact information, and answer questions. It establishes calm and confident conditions for retreat practice to take care of these details prior to the start of the retreat, which begins early the following morning. Please plan to spend the evening quietly. Prior to the retreat weekend, you may wish to wean yourself off of caffeine, stay hydrated, and optimize nutrition intake.
Pre-registration is required for participation. All participants will also complete a questionnaire and waiver at the mandatory orientation session.
The approximate cost to Maitripa College for the 4-day retreat is $250 per person which includes all beverages and food, as well as provided retreat supplies (participants supply their own text-see info on this page). Your support is appreciated at whatever level you are able: please make your offering by clicking on the donation button below or through check or cash onsite at the time of the retreat.
Retreat sponsors are warmly welcome to offer as they are able towards sustaining practitioners and retreats at Maitripa College (email email@example.com to offer sponsorship).
