Residential Retreats Only: Registration and payment of a deposit does not automatically guarantee a space in the retreat. It is dependent on room availability at the time of registration. A retreat manager will contact you shortly either to confirm your space or to ask if you would like to be on the waiting list. If you do not get into the retreat, your deposit will be refunded in full. Thank you for your patience.
50% deposit required: You have the option of paying the full fee upfront or making a 50% deposit to reserve your place at the retreat, with balance due upon arrival. Please only register for ONE option.
In keeping with the Buddhist tradition, the teachers and retreat managers receive no payment. The above cost covers room & board only. Donations offered by students at the end of the retreat are appreciated and support the teachers and retreat managers in continuing to make the teachings available to all. Dana offerings are tax-deductible.
Scholarships: Scholarships are no longer available.
IMCW Cancellation Policy: If you cancel more than four weeks before the start of the retreat, your deposit will be refunded minus a $50 administrative fee. If you cancel between two and four weeks before the retreat and if we are able to fill your space, the administrative fee will be $100 and the balance will be refunded.
We cannot offer refunds for cancellations made less than 14 days before the retreat as IMCW is committed to paying the full cost of your room. There is no refund if you decide to leave the retreat early.
