The way to learn is by leading; the way to lead is by learning.

NB: Space is limited. Due to space limitations, registration will close when the Retreat reaches full capacity, which will likely occur prior to the March 30 registration deadline. Because this Retreat regularly sells out, those who have not participated before will be given preference.

COST IS BASED ON DOUBLE OCCUPANCY
All meals, materials, and amenities are included, as well as room and registration fees. A roommate will be assigned if a preferred roommate is not indicated, as cost is based on double occupancy. A limited number of single cottages are available for an additional $375 for the two nights. Please indicate in the "Special Request" section of the registration form if you would like a single room.

Cancellation Policy
Substitutions may be made prior to the workshop. Written cancellations received by March 30, 2018 are eligible for a refund after a $75 cancellation fee. Cancellations received after March 30, 2018 are ineligible for refund.
