Morning group meditations and a half-day of work projects are included daily. Lodging is offered at a reduced rate, and participants are encouraged to include produce from the community garden in their meals; dried beans and grains are also provided for participants’ use in making meals.

Work projects may relate to event preparation, event follow-up, or other upkeep and projects that are needed around the retreat center.

A major weekend event coincides with the middle of each timeframe listed above – Celebrate Life Retreat, Kriya Initiation & Retreat, Relax-Renew-Recharge Weekend, etc. We interpret your participation in the Karma Yoga Program during those times to mean that you also plan to attend the coinciding event. For each of these events’ suggested donations, please inquire, or view the individual listings for these events (above).
