Guest Practice Retreatants stay in our guest facilities, join residents in early morning meditation and work with the community until noon. After lunch your time is unscheduled until the next morning. This is a good way to combine a private retreat with participation in the life and practice of the community.
We offer the program Sunday through Thursday nights, with a three-night minimum. The cost is $60 per day and includes meals and tax. If this is your first time as a Guest Practice Retreatant, you must arrive on a Sunday in order to receive an orientation after dinner. (Check-in is at 3:00pm, dinner at 6:00pm.)
Reservations: (415) 383-3134
As a Guest Practice Retreatant you will work one morning for each night you stay at Green Gulch. Please report to the Guest Student Manager at the 8:30am work meeting on the day after you arrive. Plan to work on the morning of your departure and depart after lunch.
