Why are there different prices listed?
Rather than use 'early bird' pricing, we're making a limited number of tickets available at different prices. This means that the lower prices will become unavailable when those tickets are sold out.
What is included in the housing?
Your housing fee includes three delicious meals per day, private or shared room, coffee/tea and snacks, and access to the 14-acer grounds. The HSRC features walking trails, a wide variety of trees, a small pond, and abundant wildlife. The Housing fee is separate from the Course Fee. Both are required.
Travel to the HSRC
Take the Van Nuys Flyaway shuttle bus to the Van Nuys Terminal. (Cost about $7 - ATM or CC ONLY - NO CASH)
After exiting from the baggage claim area, find and stand under one of the GREEN signs that say "Flyaway, Buses, Long Distance Vans." You might have to walk to your left or right to find one. They're in the CENTER isle.
From the Van Nuys flyaway, take a cab to the Holy Spirit Retreat Center. (Cost about $25)
Take a cab to the HSRC. (Cost about $45)
