◇ Please plan to arrive at 4:45pm on Thursday, March 24th and to stay on site until we complete at 2:00pm on Sunday, March 27th.
◇ With the deep inner work you will be doing, it is very important to arrive at the workshop sober. You’ll also be asked to abstain from all substances for the duration of the workshop.
◇ We request that you turn off your cell phone for the duration of the retreat, to limit distractions and give you the maximum benefit of the experience. Please give loved ones our Event Manager’s phone number in case of an emergency:
Freida Neiman: 415-602-7585
◇ Plan to arrive on site by 4:45pm. Dinner is at 5:30pm, and we’ll begin at 6:30pm.
◇ Four Springs is approximately 85 miles from San Francisco, just north of the Napa Valley region, near Middletown, CA. The drive from San Francisco, Oakland, or Sacramento airports are each about 2.5 hours by car from Four Springs. If you are flying into San Francisco, your flight will need to arrive by 12:00pm in order to arrive at the site on time – this allows for any delays, luggage, rental car pick-up and any stops along the way.
◇ It is very important you arrive on time, so please do all you can do to be there by 4:45pm on Thursday night. Please do not arrive before 4:45pm, as we will not be able to receive you.
◇ If you do not arrive at the workshop by 6:30pm, you will forfeit your participation in the entire workshop, and not receive a refund or transfer.
◇ You must stay on site for the entire workshop–until departure–or your workshop will not be considered complete, which will affect your ability to staff or participate in future workshops.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What are the accommodations like at the workshop?
We handpick our venue sites for comfort, accessibility, and a concentration on the natural beauty around us. Each site is different, but all feature stunning locations with comfortable accommodations for each participant. Most rooms are shared with one or two other participants. We put a lot of thought and effort into making sure each participant is comfortable and well-resourced, asking for sleeping preferences before the workshop. An on-site event manager is there to see to any concerns that come up.
What is the food like at the workshop?
We have an on-site chef present to cook healthy meals for all participants, who attempts to cook with as much organic, natural food as possible. We ask for any food allergies or restrictions in the questionnaire, and we can accommodate most needs, including dairy-free, gluten-free and vegetarian. Please let us know if you have any dietary restrictions or concerns, and we will do all that we can to accommodate those needs. In the rare case that we are not able to, we’ll make sure to communicate that beforehand and provide space for you in the refrigerators on site.
can i do this workshop with a friend or relative?
Yes absolutely! Many people choose to complete their workshop with a close friend or family member present, and it’s a very bonding experience. We encourage you to invite anyone who you are close to, and who might also benefit from the weekend.
What if i can’t get there in time, or have to leave early?
Each process of the weekend is incredibly important. It’s key that you be on site before the workshop starts at 6:30pm, and that you are able to stay until the very end. Please plan accordingly when booking your travel. We cannot accommodate late arrivals or early departures.
