This retreat is for people who were ordained into the Triratna Buddhist Order during 2017, 2018 and 2019.
Cost: $45/night sliding scale for whole retreat: $325 to $425. If you pay more than the lowest fee, you are providing dana for those who need it. If you need to request a lower rate please go ahead and register indicating the amount you would like to pay and we will try to cover this with any extra dana received.
Accommodations: We encourage you to camp if you are able. We have some tents and camping gear you may borrow. Indoor sleeping is limited and there are no private rooms.
Flying into San Francisco Airport:
Try to arrive on April 25 by 2 pm at the latest. There will be carpools driving people to the retreat center about 2 - 3 hours away.
You can also fly into Oakland Airport if it's cheaper or more convenient, and if you are willing to get Bart if necessary to the SFBC - it's a straightforward ride and just a 2.5 block walk. While it's quite possible someone leaving from Oakland can pick you up we can't guarantee that until we know who is coming and/or helping with driving.
Try to schedule your flight to leave after 4 pm from SFO (or Oakland as above - maybe allow extra time). The retreat will end by 11 am.
Please register no later than March 28. Registering early really helps with organization. You can pay in full or pay a deposit of $100.
Sliding Scale Payments: If you can please pay the maximum amount to help those who need a lower rate. If you wish to pay a lower amount please select the minimum amount and then in the shopping cart please add a donation to top up the amount you wish to pay.
Deposit: You can also make a deposit to book and then pay the remainder on arrival at the event.
