As of 1st November 2020 we are hoping that our 2021 courses and retreats will be able to be fully residential again. If however, there are still restrictions in place due to Covid-19, the advertised course/tutored retreat will either run online, via Zoom or run with restricted numbers at the retreat. Untutored Retreats will either run with restricted numbers or would be cancelled.
Places on courses, tutored retreats and untutored retreats should be booked as normal with a deposit of £150 to secure your place.
The price for an online course will be £420. Places will be limited to eight so as to maintain the small group numbers and individual attention The Garsdale Retreat is known for.
Four weeks before the start of the course, tutored retreat or untutored retreat we will let you know if it is going to run with reduced numbers, go online or be cancelled (untutored retreats). At which time you will have the choice to either pay the balance or have your deposit refunded.
Structure of the online week is as follows:
Monday: 5.00pm – 6.00pm Introductory Workshop
