Note: MMTCP students needing a qualifying retreat will need to read the MMTCP Retreat Info here and attend both the Orientation for MMTCP Qualifying Retreat Participants and Closing Session for MMTCP Qualifying Retreat Participants.
MMTCP need to complete these 2 forms:
- MMTCP must be present for the full duration of the retreat in accordance with the MMTCP Student Agreement for at least 5 formal practice sessions per day including some combination of talks, guided/instructional meditations, Q&A periods, silent meditations, guided mindful movement, and small group/individual teacher meetings. Included in this number must be at least 2 silent sits of 30-45 minutes each every day (affinity sits count), and at least two small group or individual teacher meetings over the course of the retreat.
- Please keep a record of your attendance as we will ask you at the end of the retreat to self-report that you have attended the required sessions.
- If an MMTCP student attendee misses any of their required sessions, they are responsible for communicating the absence as soon as possible. You may contact or send other MMTCP-related questions to the MMTCP Coordinator here (either click this link, or copy/paste it into your email)
Opportunity for Generosity – Dana and Evaluation
In keeping with the Buddhist tradition, the teachers and retreat managers receive no payment. The base fee covers admin costs to run the retreat. Donations offered by students at the end of the retreat are appreciated and support the main teachers, and retreat managers in continuing to make the teachings available to all.
At the end of the retreat, we will have a short talk about dana and some suggestions on how to approach it. There will also be an opportunity to offer an evaluation.
