Event description

Description


"Since all this thinking hasn’t done me much good,
In order to grow accustomed to observing my own mind,
I’m going today to the wildwoods,
Where you, dear mind, will realize lasting happiness."
... Longchenpa, Song of the Enchanting Wildwoods

Welcome to the Dharmata Foundation Summer Retreat 2018

Monday, July 2, 2018 to Saturday, July 7, 2018

Location: Camp Navarro, a beautiful camping and event facility in the redwoods of Navarro, California, is located about 2.5 hours north of the Bay Area via easily-accessible roads. The peaceful and spacious property is wooded, and easy to walk. (Facility Map: Click Here)

Schedule: Check-in begins Monday, July 2, at 3:00 pm, with dinner at 5:00 pm. The retreat ends Saturday, July 7, by 12:30 pm followed by lunch.

All participants are asked to make a commitment to attend the full retreat from Monday afternoon until lunchtime on Saturday.

The daily schedule includes alternating periods of meditation and teaching with Anam Thubten, beginning with early morning meditation at 6:30 am and ending in the evening around 9:00 pm. To support our turning inward, we will observe silence throughout this retreat.

Registration: Prices are per-person, and include retreat fees, housing, and 3 vegetarian meals a day. Registration closes on June 18. Early registration is recommended, as some accommodations are limited. You may register using credit card or check. Full payment due upon registration. If you choose to pay by check, payment is due within two weeks of registering; the address to mail the check will be indicated on your confirmation email.

Scholarship Fund: For those who are able, please consider making a contribution to the Dharmata scholarship fund. Simply add a "Scholarship Donation ticket" to your room selection. Thank you in advance for your gift of dharma to others.

Accommodations: Camp Navarro offers accomodations in cabins, teepee tents, Adirondacks (Open-air cabins), and space for your own tent or RV. None of the accommodations have indoor plumbing; there are nearby bathhouses. All housing choices are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. While we will make every effort to meet your accommodation requests, we ask for a second housing choice in the event that changes need to be made. If you have a roommate request, enter their name on your registration form, and be sure to register the second person separately.

Please read the accomodations descriptions before making your reservation: Accommodation Descriptions Downloadable File

Cancellation policy: Full refund before June 1; after that refunds are available only if we are able to fill your space. Consideration will be given to emergency situations on a case-by-case basis.

Please note: This retreat is open only to those who are able to attend the full retreat. For those of you who would like to attend a retreat with Anam Thubten but are not able to be present for the full retreat, please check the Dharmata Website calendar for the numerous other retreats offered throughout the year.

Dana, the Practice of Generosity: Registration fees cover the cost of room and board, and Dharmata administrative fees only. It is customary for students to have the opportunity to practice generostiy in gratitude and support of the teacher and his teachings. If you would like to make a monetary gift (dana) to Anam Thubten, there will be a place do do so at the retreat. (Cash or checks only, please.)
