You should let your family and friends know what you are doing, but this retreat will NOT require complete isolation from them as on normal silent meditation retreats. We encourage as much separation as possible from the use of technology other than for the purposes of the retreat, but we will devote a small amount of time each day, as a group, to practice mindfully checking the news and our personal messages (for those who wish to do so).
This retreat is open to anyone of ages 16+
Detailed daily schedule coming soon.

**MARC is committed to equity and accessibility and with this in mind have multiple payment tiers. If you cannot afford the minimum fee and want to participate, please contact us (email@example.com). We are asking for a registration payment for this retreat for two reasons. The first is to create a solid container of commitment and community from participants. In this way we can have consistent small groups, structured workshops and a sense of practice community in our virtual meditation hall. The second is so that we can financially support staff mentors who are committing a significant amount of time and energy to hold the container of the retreat.
