Sliding Scale Registration Fees:

Registration for this retreat includes teacher support.


Traditionally, Insight Retreats in the West ask a base rate which does not go to the teachers (or, when possible, no fees,) and then request donations to support the teachers and the teachings at the end of the retreat. This is the practice and tradition of generosity (Dana), which supports a community of practice and makes the teachings available to all who seek them.


The costs for our retreats are all-inclusive and provide support for the teachers' time and their dedication to continued practice and teaching; the sliding scale options and financial aid are intended to honor the spirit of generosity that holds the teachings as a practice of mutual giving and receiving between teacher and students. 


In order to maintain this spirit of generosity, we ask that you pay at the highest rate you can afford, in order to support our ability to continue to offer lower rates and scholarships to those who would otherwise be unable to attend. 

Registration Process: 

you'll receive an email confirmation at the time you submit your registration. As the retreat date approaches (2 weeks prior) you'll be sent a form to give us your meeting time availability and at that time you will also be asked for information to be provided to the teachers  so that they may best support your practice. If you are an MMTCP or CE seeking student, we will additionally send you a Participant Agreement form.

Please make sure correct email address is indicated on your registration form. 

About Your Teacher Meeting Assignments:

Retreatants will be assigned to a small group teacher meetings during the retreat. You may be assigned to a meeting at either 9:30am or  5:30pm Pacific Time.


Prior to the retreat, registered participants will be asked to submit a form which will allow you to indicate if one of those times would not work for your time zone, as well as providing information for the teachers. Small group meeting times will be assigned according to the available times you indicate on this form, with priority for any preference based primarily on time zone considerations.  Unfortunately, due to the logistics involved; we will be unable to accommodate any other special requests.
