🌱 Arrival/Departure times: Arrive between 3pm - 4pm and retreat finishes just after lunch on the last day.
Because of the nature of these retreats we can't accept late arrivals so that we can all commence the schedule at the same time.
The silence does not commence as soon as you arrive. You will have plenty of time to chat to other guests, make yourself at home and ask any questions you might have.
