Hi All,

Please join us for our second annual AYP weekend retreat in Allentown, PA during the weekend of Sept 16th to 18th, 2011 at Mensch Mill Conference & Retreat Center, located in the beautiful mountains of Berks County, Pennsylvania..
http://www.menschmill.org/confer.asp
86 Camp Mensch Mill Road
Alburtis, PA 18011, USA

Below are the details of the retreat.

Please contact me, Shanti, to register for the retreat and/or with any questions, concerns you may have. I would like to have a small scholarship fund in place this time, and although I will not have this till I get a few sign ups and/or a few donations, I do want all of you to keep this in mind, if you are tight on money, please do contact me, and I will see what I can do. If you have a few extra $$ to spare, please do consider sending it in with your payment and I can add it to the scholarship fund. A retreat experience has a huge impact on our spiritual path, and I would like to give this opportunity to as many as I can. So if I can help in any way, please do not hesitate to ask.

  • Date and Time: Sept 16th to 18th, 2011


  • Location: Mensch Mill Conference & Retreat Center Alburtis, PA, USA


  • Leaders: Shanti, Kirtanman, Carson


  • Rates: $270 per person. Includes, boarding (2 nights), meals (6 meals + snacks) and retreat fees.


  • Room Occupancy: 3 beds per room with attached private baths. (Boarding at Kline Lodge: http://www.menschmill.org/popup.asp...to=lodge.jpg and meeting at Kline Center http://www.menschmill.org/popup.asp...to=kline.jpg)


  • We do have limited...
    Double occupancy : Total to be paid will be $620 for 2 (You will have to find someone who wants to share a room and the rate for double occupancy.)
    Private occupancy: Total cost will be $430.


  • Payment, Cancellation and Refund: Payment has to be done in full upfront when you do the booking, and there will be no refunds after June 15th (The User Group (which would be us) is responsible for all contracted facility charges not canceled 90 days prior to arrival.).
    Note: If 2 or more people sign up together, you can take $10 off per person. So if 2 people pay together you can take $20 off the total paid and if 3 sign up at once (make one payment for 3 people) you can take $30 off the total.


  • Accommodation before and after the retreat days: Depending on how many people do stay Thursday and Sunday night, I will contact Best Western and see if I can get a group rate for Thursday night and Sunday night. If you do plan on staying Thursday night or Sunday night, do let me know. I can even co-ordinate sharing rooms and splitting the cost of rooms for the night if needed.
    I have also talked to the person in charge of Mensch Mill, and he has said he can give us the rooms for thursday night. The rate is $100 for the night, if there is more than one person staying the extra nights, the rate can be split between them.

    Hi JuZen,
    Yes, at 10.30 am. We will get the place by 10.. so we can all check into our rooms and be at the meeting room by 10.30. That is the plan. It will be lovely to see you and Innercall again if you do make it.


    WoodDragon... looking forward to sharing the retreat with you.

    Hi All,
    Quick update, we have 18 people signed up already and 5 people who have said they want to be there, but have to work out some logistics before they can confirm.
    We have 5 rooms left that can hold up to 15 people (not counting the people who have not yet registered, if I count them, then I have only 3 rooms left). If we have any requests for double occupancy or private occupancy, then those numbers will reduce further. Double and single occupancy may not be available for much longer.

    If you are thinking of attending this retreat, please do consider sending me a note so I can hold a place for you at the retreat.
    Looking forward to seeing all of you in Sept.

    Hi All,

    We now have only 3 spots remaining at the Kline Center (the building I have booked for our retreat).

    Once that is full and if we do get more participants, I can get another building where we can fit 8 to 12 people if needed. That building is available for that day.
