Can I bring my group to the Dharma Centre?
The Dharma Centre is available for rent by groups, view photos with detailed descriptions for each building. Our group rates are based upon a guaranteed minimum booking and the fee varies according to the size of the group, the duration, and whether or not food services are required. Groups are welcome to bring their own cook and own food and have full use of our main kitchen.
Full use of the property and facilities are included. Our food rates include 3 prepared buffet-style meals per day. In addition, the Dharma Centre will advertise your group's retreat on our website and any promotional material we send to our mailing list if so desired. The Teacher or Retreat Leader stays for free with a minimum of 10 people.
As our Centre is minimally staffed, groups are expected to assist in cleanup duties after meals and to keep all common spaces and rooms clean and tidy. Guidelines for use of the Centre will be provided upon booking or if requested in advance.
A 50% deposit of the total cost for the minimum number of people and number of days is required in advance to reserve your booking. If less than the minimum number agreed upon show up, the group would still have to pay the minimum fee for the retreat for the
pre-selected number of people. Full retreat payment is due 10 days prior to the start of your retreat.
Deposits are non-refundable with less than 2 months notice of a cancellation. In some cases, all or part of a deposit may be refunded if less than 2 months cancellation notice is given and a replacement booking is found.
