# The daily Yoga/prayer/meditation session is intended to be led by
Community Members.
* Retreat Participants are welcome to arrive on the evening of Friday 13th and/or stay over until Sunday 22nd for an agreed small extra fee.

A primary intention of this Retreat is to lay an energetic foundation-stone for the PostaHouse Community. The Retreat participants will live, work and play community for 8 days.

This retreat gives us all a chance to explore our own and one another’s gifts. Those who come together here will find what it is that joins us in fellowship, and where we have the work to do. Participation in the Retreat does not bring with it any obligation at all to “join anything.”

However it is our desire at PostaHouse that this exploration will lead to some people making an intention to spend part of their year here. This period may be as little as a week or as much as many months. Our PostaHouse Community will be these active members, the land on which we live and our relationship to one another. It will also be our supporters from further away.

This is not a “passive retreat”; we will be forming it and clothing it together. Most of us have only met before via Facebook or on Conference calls – this is our opportunity in “Earth-time & space” now, together, to make real community in ways which enrich each other in respect and love.

Accommodation and Food
Accommodation for this summer retreat will be in shared rooms and/or in tents in the garden. There are showers and toilet facilities in the house. A prepared Daily Dinner is included as are the Lunches on the first and last Saturday; other lunches during the week are the participants’ own responsibility. Breakfast foods will be available for self-catering every morning.

Costs
The cost for the retreat per person is as follows
€385  – registration before 1st May 2012
€425  – registration after 1st May 2012

We require a deposit of €100 at the time of booking.
The remainder is payable within 4 weeks, or before 1st July,
whichever is the sooner.
These costs include food and accommodation as outlined above;
travel is at participants’ own expense.

We look forward to meeting you in July in Italy.
