Youth Retreat, 2020
Registration opens on Wednesday, July 1st at 9:45 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 indicate that you are requesting to stay during the retreat (please indicate the name of the child who 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.
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 some additional information that we hope will be helpful: typical retreat daily schedule, mealtime practice, and the FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions.
