Many of you are looking for online retreats to satisfy the 6+ night silent retreat prerequisite for MMTCP.  Only online retreats pre-approved will be counted as qualifying MMTCP prerequisite retreats.  Not all online retreats will meet the criteria Jack and Tara have outlined.

If you are interested in retreats that meet Jack and Tara’s criteria for online retreats for the MMTCP, you must read MMTCP Participant Guidelines for a Successful Online Retreat (for students).

While we are able to provide the list of approved online retreats, we are unable to answer retreat-specific questions. Please email the contact listed on each retreat below.

Below are online retreats that have been approved to satisfy the 6+ night silent retreat prerequisite for MMTCP.  The approved online retreats are in chronological order.
