Cost and Financial Aid
The costs of the retreat include room and board and an administrative fee to cover the other retreat costs. The teachings are presented without fees included to support the teaching staff. Participants will be asked to make a voluntary contribution to support the teachers. Some financial aid is available. Requests for financial aid should be made to Rabbi Roth at jeff@awakenedheartproject.org.

Deposits and cancellation policy:
A minimum deposit is required to hold your place. The appropriate deposit should be one half of your retreat fee. If you need to make different arrangements for the payment of the deposit and the retreat fee please contact brian@awakenedheartproject.org

The refund policy of The Awakened Heart Project (AHP) is as follows: Any deposit or payment made for a retreat presented by AHP is refundable for any reason prior to ten (10) days before the retreat, less an administrative fee of fifty dollars ($50.00).

Within the period of ten (10) days prior to a retreat presented by AHP, any deposit or payment made for that retreat is refundable only for illness or exceptional circumstances, and at our discretion, less an administrative fee of fifty dollars ($50.00).

Important Additional Information:
The retreat center will provide bedding and towels if you are sleeping in a room. Those of you that are commuting, you will need to bring your own towels, toiletries, etc.

Plan on dressing comfortably and informally. You may want to bring special clothes for Shabbat according to your own Shabbat custom. If you plan on using a tallis or tefillin for prayers, which is optional, please bring your own. The retreat center has cushions for sitting on the floor, as well as ample chairs.

The retreat will be conducted in social silence. That means, that once we explain the practice after dinner on Thursday, we will observe silence at all times, including during meals, walking, and the time spent in your room. There will be periods each day for asking questions in the large group. Each person will also have private or small group time with the teacher, where you can describe your practice and discuss anything that is arising for you as a result of the retreat experience. The basic practice we teach is to pay attention to what is occurring in the present moment throughout the entire time of the retreat. Towards that end we invite you to leave reading materials, ipods, computers etc. at home.
