Sliding Scale Tuition

Because we understand that everyone has different financial ability, tuition is on a sliding scale that allows participants to pay according to individual means.  Sustaining tuition is $300; mid tuition is $200; and base tuition is $100.  At checkout, you will be asked for a discount code.  For sustaining tuition, no discount code is required.  For mid and base tuition, please enter the code mid200 or base100, respectively.

Retreat Details

The retreat will be led by Helen Vantine, PhD and Stephanie Swann, PhD. The retreat will mostly be held in noble silence as a way to support self reflection and insight through awareness.

The day will consist of sitting meditation, walking meditation, mindful movement, and free time for wandering the beautiful mountains of Elohee. There will also be times for individual meetings with the retreat leaders. In the evenings there will be talks related to the topic of living mindfully. This retreat is rooted in Buddhist psychology and ethical principles.

**Please note that the retreat is held in noble silence. There are 2-3 hours of silent meditation practice in the morning and 2-3 hours of silent meditation in the afternoon. Although it is not necessary, participants who attend this retreat often find it helpful to have an established mindful meditation practice.

What to bring

You will want to bring outdoor shoes for walking and hiking (optional). Indoor shoes, slippers, or socks are fine for inside the house. In the meditation hall slippers, socks or bare feet are permitted. Meditation cushions and mats as well as chairs will be available. You are welcome to bring your own meditation mat and cushion or bench if you like. Loose fitting clothes are best for meditation and yoga. You may want to bring clothing for outdoors as well. If the weather permits we will have an outdoor fire on Saturday evening for those who would like to participate.
