Registration & Accommodations

Your purchase covers your admission to the classes and coaching for the weekend. Room & Board are paid to Whispering Pines when you arrive for the retreat in October. All rooms at Whispering Pines are technically double rooms. You still can reserve one on your own (as a single) if you like, but more people can attend if you are willing to share! Be a sport, find a roommate! You do not need to call them to reserve a room. We handle that for you. We cannot guarantee single rooms!

Whispering Pines Room & Board – paid upon arrival on site

Friday thru Sunday double occupancy $426.24 per person
Friday thru Sunday single occupancy $556.24

Friday thru Monday double occupancy $600.48 per person
Friday thru Monday single occupancy $795.48

Staying Off Site – paid upon arrival on site

Since it looks like we will probably sell out this year, we are talking with a nearby Hampton Inn to get a special block rate. If you choose to stay off site for any reason, Whispering Pines has a day fee that you can pay when you arrive for the retreat.

Friday thru Sunday $246.24 per person
Friday thru Monday $330.48 per person
