Price

The retreat is based on donation.  Your place is paid for by someone's donation and you will have the opportunity to donate so that someone else may benefit from a future retreat.

Rules

It takes at least 10 days to learn the basic technique.  The rules are designed to help you to learn it.  The more you are able to follow them during and outside official sitting, the more progress you will make in learning and benefitting from it.  Continuity of practice is key.

1. No alcohol, drugs, cigarettes or sexual activities.

2. Avoid eating meat and fish, caffeine, work, the telephone, computers and social media.

3. Talking should be kept to an absolute minimum (i.e you may speak to the teacher but not to the other participants during the retreat).
