Cancellation Policy: Space on this retreat is limited. In order to make it accessible to as many people as possible, a full refund (less a $15 administrative fee) is only available if you cancel 3 weeks (21 days) or more in advance. 50% refund is available if you cancel 2 weeks or more in advance. No refund is available if you cancel less than 14 days prior to the retreat.

Housing: We will have some participants attending from out of town. If you have an extra room or are able to host someone for the retreat, please send us a quick note to let us know. We’ll be in touch 4-6 weeks prior to the retreat to coordinate housing needs.

Requested Experience: While there are no prerequisites for attending this retreat, some familiarity with Mindfulness meditation and Nonviolent Communication (NVC) are recommended. For those without a background in mindfulness, we recommend receiving instruction prior to the retreat through a course or some other such means. (Such course are given regularly, for example, at Spirit Rock Meditation Center, the East Bay Meditation Center, San Francisco Insight, and the Insight Meditation Center in Redwood City). For those with no previous training in NVC, we request that you obtain and read a copy of Marshal Rosenberg's Nonviolent Communication: A Language of Life. You may also take a workshop of any length with BayNVC.  For their schedule click here.
