This retreat is for all preceptors in the Triratna Buddhist Order.
Cost: $45/night sliding scale for whole retreat: $135 - $200. If you pay more than the lowest fee, you are providing dana for those who need it. If you need to request please indicate this on your registration - we hope to collect enough dana to cover this.
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.
If you arrive before May 5, you will need to arrange somewhere to stay.
Flying into San Francisco Airport:
Try to arrive on May 5 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. If you are also attending the women preceptors retreat please register for both retreats and indicate this in the notes.
Please register no later than March 28. Registering early really helps with organization.
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.
