Registration opens on Tuesday, July 3rd at 9:00 a.m. This retreat is designed for youth to learn how to practice sitting and walking meditation. This retreat is offered to youths 11-19 years of age only, to avoid any miscommunications, please only register youths within these age limitations, thank you. At this time, we have very limited spaces for parents, if any parents are interested in staying at Bhavana Society during this retreat, please register separately using our Visitor Registration form and note you are requesting to stay during the retreat (please note child's name that is confirmed to participate in the retreat). All request for parents to stay at Bhavana during this retreat will immediately be placed on a Wait List. If the retreat does not fill to capacity, we will start contacting parents on the Wait List to let them know a space is available. If the retreat fills to capacity, then unfortunately, we cannot offer spaces for parents. Please plan accordingly in case this guideline applies to parent's request to stay.
Please also note, we can only accept parents whose children have already been registered and confirmed to participate. Once these limited spaces fill to capacity, unfortunately, we will no longer be able to accept youths or parents. Unlike other retreats, an evening snack will be served Saturday late afternoon.
Event Participation is restricted to 'Youth Only' (with exception for few parents). As you may know that we recently have updated our website/registration module. Each new account begins with 'Beginner' level and after review of each registration profile for provided information on 'past retreat attended', we assign a 'participation/experience' level. In interim, if you receive a registration error such as participation level mismatch between your account and the requested retreat. And, if you think this is an error, please email office manager to review and update your account profile. We appreciate your understanding, and request two business day to reviews your message by our small team of staff and volunteer to respond. We regret any inconvenience caused due to this transition
Please note, if a Retreat Registration becomes active during holidays or weekends, we may not be able to ‘get back to you’ about your retreat registration request until the next business day. Thank you for your understanding.
On-site registration/check-in opens at 3:00 p.m. in the Dining Hall. Please arrive to allow enough time to complete registration here and settle in before the retreat begins. All retreats end after lunch on the last day.
Although every retreat is slightly different here is a typical retreat daily schedule.
