WHAT WE LIKE /
the full monty of digital detoxes. "parallel" retreats are smaller groups, 45 people max. One-day classes available instead. you can also stay off-site as a "carpooler" if you like.
WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW /
to stay here means participating in a meditation retreat. these include a full-day schedule of walking and sitting meditations. all meals are vegetarian, but they offer extra nut butters and protein to people who need that. some retreats require a lottery to apply up to 5 months in advance. bring your own coffee and filters if you need it.
AVERAGE RATE /
$615 - $1230 / week
