The retreat is currently sold out! Please contact Christoph to get on the waiting list:

Join Upali and Tucker for a 7-day retreat in the countryside of southern Germany. The retreat will be held in noble silence, which means you will have the best opportunity to deepen your meditation practice without distraction. The week will include extended periods for silent meditation, evening dharma talks, and 1:1 meditation interviews with both Tucker and Upali.

When: February 15th – 22nd, 2020

Where: Kieselhof Retreat Center. Murrhardt, Germany. (60 minutes from Stuttgart, Germany)

Cost: Initial registration cost is $170 USD (approx. €152).

These costs do not include Dana (generosity), for the teachings of Upali & Tucker. Dana can be given in person or online after the retreat. So, to break down the payment process clearly:

Community Code of Conduct
Please be sure to read our Community Code of Conduct for this retreat. It begins based on the 5 precepts, and part of completing registration is agreeing to it. If you have any questions or concerns, just reach out to Upali or Tucker.

Price includes food and housing and does not include the registration fee. Payment for food and housing will be made upon arrival at the retreat center.
Note that this fee reserves your space but does not include food & housing costs to be paid upon your arrival to the retreat center.

Once payment is submitted, we only offer an 80% refund (minus the PayPal fee) until December 15th.  After that date, fees will not be refundable as dropping out of the retreat will likely mean a retreat space will be left unattended.  However, if someone does replace your spot after December 15th, we will refund 80% of your fee. The only other case where a fee will be refunded is if you have a true emergency (ex. severe illness or death in the family), that suddenly prevents you from attending.
