Book Here for  'Nowhere To Go' Retreat

Open to both the Being Revealed and the Being Explored Communities

We receive money for our work in two different ways - a Fixed Payment to cover costs and a Donation in exchange for our teaching and guidance. Usually, we receive the Fixed Payment in advance and the donation at the end of the retreat, but it is possible to pay both now if you prefer. Please follow the links below.

Fixed Payment

Due to Coronavirus, all residential retreats are precarious. We will review the situation two weeks beforehand, and only decide about whether or not to go ahead with this retreat at the beginning of February 2021. At this point, we would like to ask you to pay a deposit of £100 to secure your place. When we decided to go ahead, we will send the link to the rest of the Fixed Payment.

The Fixed Payment for this retreat varies between £370 - £435 depending on your accommodation. This Payment also covers a portion of what it costs us to stay in business. The amount is averaged out over a year and covers all our admin costs including wages for our administrator, website, broadband, hardware and software, data protection, phone, accountant, office space, etc. For residential events, it also covers food and venue hire.

Our usual policy is that, once paid, this amount is non-refundable unless we can get someone else to fill the place, in which case we will refund you or transfer it to another group, less a £10 admin charge.

However, during this time of the COVID-19 pandemic, we will refund your payment in full in the event of a COVID related cancellation or withdrawal.

You are about to sign up for a residential retreat. Before proceeding it is important for you to know that it may not be possible to maintain any comprehensive social distancing at Bala Brook. (Some of us will be sharing rooms, food & bathrooms; the group room is quite small, etc – it’s just not realistic that we can make it completely safe). The simple fact is that we will form part of a temporary ‘bubble’ for the duration of the retreat. There will need to be a lot of trust involved and a lot of respect for difference (eg. some people may not want to hug or be physically close, or choose to wear a mask and have their own plate & mug; others may be less concerned and want to have lots of hugs). But each one of us will need to relate with the situation.

However this unfolds in reality, the bottom line is that there is some risk involved. And, in our assessment, the risk is worth taking for the value of these retreats. The opportunity to be in the room in good company, body-to-body with others exploring a depth of Presence, Love and Truth is, increasingly, rare and precious. It's not something we can take for granted, and, in our opinion, it's worth extending ourselves for.

So, for as long as this Covid-19 pandemic continues, here’s what we require from you if you wish to participate in a residential retreat with us:-
 * that you agree to take full self-responsibility for any health consequences that may result from attending the retreat
 * that you also commit to inform us immediately if you have any symptoms, or reason to believe you might be contagious, both in the two weeks prior to the retreat and during the event
 * for 10 days before the retreat you commit to do as much as you can to reduce your contact and exposure to at least the following levels:-
     - either strictly follow Govt.Guidleines, or at least be respectful of them – even if you trust your own judgement more than the rules
     - do everything you can to avoid others who may have been more casual than you, or may themselves have been in high risk situations
     - in all public situations, be scrupulous about masks, hand washing etc

When you click the link below, you will be asked to confirm that you agree to this. You will also be asked to sign our usual agreement (giving us relevant information about medical conditions, serious allergies, and medications). Finally, we will ask for contact details of a next-of-kin in the unlikely event of illness or accident during your time with us.

This process is something new we are exploring – we welcome feedback as we adapt our booking system to the new situation.
