May 25-30, 2021

Dear Friends, we are grateful for your leadership and support in the Wake Up Sangha over the past year and beyond. Young adults everywhere were faced with new challenges on the path and you were there. We would like to extend a special invitation to you to come and practice with us in person during the online Wake Up Earth Retreat at Deer Park Monastery. It will be six days of meditation and mindful activities for young adults with the fourfold community. We hope you can join us!

Early registration is recommended as there is a limit to the number of guests that we can receive for the in-person segment of this retreat. Our hope is to enjoy this time together in a way that keeps everyone healthy and safe. We are kindly asking all registrants to fulfill the following requirements:

1) Please have received confirmation of your registration prior to arrival

2) Be prepared to share your CDC card showing complete COVID-19 vaccination, meaning that at least 2 weeks will have passed after your second shot by the day you are scheduled to arrive

3) Bring a face mask to wear any time you are indoors and maintain 6 feet of social distancing both indoors and outdoors

4) Allow us to take your temperature when you arrive to the monastery (your temperature must be under 100 degrees for admittance)

5) Have officially received a transmission of the Five Mindfulness Trainings

6) Please sign a liability waiver at check-in

We ask for your understanding when we say that without a CDC record of your complete COVID-19 vaccination and/or if your temperature is over 100 degrees upon arrival to the monastery, you will not be able to enter the retreat. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Check-in time is between 2 and 4 PM on Tuesday and the retreat will end around 3 PM on Sunday. We kindly ask all friends to arrive on the designated arrival day, depart on the designated departure day, and to follow the daily schedule of the monastery. All registrants will check-in and practice together in Solidity Hamlet.

Thank you and we hope to see you soon!
