Registration Information

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY

Please use the booking button below to begin the process of registering for your counting retreat. Please give 1 week for your application to be reviewed.

Submitting your application does not confirm your space in the retreat, however, it is necessary to pay a deposit for the retreat and because onsite accommodations are limited, it is encouraged to pay a deposit for onsite accommodation* if you would like to stay onsite. These deposits will be fully refunded if you are not accepted.

*Due to a high demand for private accommodations, single, double, twin and deluxe accommodations are currently only available to those who are planning on attending all ten weeks of Winter Retreats. People engaging in close retreat will not be able to book private accommodations unless they are also engaging in the remaining 5-6 weeks of International Winter Retreats in the Temple.

** If you would like to be on the waiting list for a private accommodation and are not staying the full 10 weeks, please make your request to reg@kadampanewyork.org
