Work/Family:We encourage retreat participants to minimize work or communication with others in general, during the 7 day retreat.
While laptops may be brought, and there is WIFI, staying focused on your healing will allow you to gain the most from this retreat.
We suggest that retreat participants notify work, friends and family that they may not be available during the 7 days. This limits unnecessary stress and anxiety thereby increasing your awareness and healing during the retreat.
We look forward to seeing you.
