You need to do this as soon as you apply for a course.

All information is strictly confidential.

If, however, you are particularly concerned with confidentiality, it is best to phone. The teacher will give you their phone number once you contact them by email.

If travelling by car, are you able to offer a lift to other retreatants?


Do you want come as the Assistant?

As an assistant, we do not expect payment of the deposit or offer a donation because you have kindly offered your time.
And as usual any further dana by you in your gift.

Your commitment is essential, for the course would be very difficult to run without an assistant and may indeed have to be cancelled.

I have read and accept the Code of Conduct with all added information in Booking on the website.
I agree to abide by it while at Satipanya.

I have read how the centre is financed by donations save only for the deposit fee of £10 a day to cover basic costs.
I understand that my place on the course will not be confirmed until the deposit has been received. You will receive an invoice from Paypal. Please remember this is not refundable should you cancel.
