Visit us and participate in daily meditation, physical conditioning, and analytical discussions with the full-time students. Learn at an accelerated rate and achieve higher levels of skill and understanding in a shorter period. We are training to become teachers and we welcome the chance to both teach and learn from you.

Visitors can pace themselves based on their background and individual needs. You are allowed to form your own schedule, so long as it does not interfere with the daily activities and operations of the Retreat Center.

Fall Semester: September 1 - December 15
Spring Semester: January 15 - June 30

During these periods, there are no seminars or special attention paid to visitors except under special circumstances. You will live, eat, and train with the full-time students and abide by the rules of the Retreat Center. Please consider this carefully before you sign up.


There is no minimum duration for your stay. Review additional visitor info and contact us to book your visit.
Be sure to receive confirmation of your visit through email or phone before booking any travel.


Meals: No special meals are available. No personal cooking or camp cooking are allowed. The kitchen will be occupied.
