All food is provided and is vegetarian, vegan optional, and mostly organic. When dairy products or wheat are served, alternatives are provided. Since we cannot cater to each person’s individual food preferences, we ask you to eat the meals that are served. However, you may bring a limited amount of supplies to supplement our meals - a small amount of refrigerator space and a microwave are available. If you have medical dietary restrictions, please let us know at least 3 weeks before the start of the retreat.

On weekend retreats, no dinner will be served the first night of the retreat - you're welcome to bring your dinner and eat it there. If not, there will be boxed soups and other packaged foods available for you to make if you need it.

* Do you have any food allergies?


What supplies will you need at the retreat (that you cannot bring)?


We do our best to organize carpools for retreats. However, our transportation resources are limited. If you have access to a car and can drive others, please do. Riders are expected to offer to pay for gas.

All SFBC events are offered on a sliding scale to make them accessible to as many people as possible. We ask that you pay the highest amount that you can afford. Your contributions help others come on retreats at a lower rate, cover some of our related program and administrative costs, and, depending on the event, pay for airfare and lodging for visiting teachers. Reduced rates are available, but must be arranged before the registration deadline. Email to arrange a reduced rate.

Any balance due will be collected at the beginning of the retreat. During the retreat you may make an optional donation toward supporting the retreat leaders, all of whom volunteer their time to teach. The tradition of making offerings to teachers is called dana, which means generosity in the Pali language.
