BOARDING - currently fully booked with a waitlist

Boarding includes all meals and ensuite accommodation. There are limited numbers of single (1 bed, 1 person), double (1 bed, 2 person), and twin rooms (2 bed, 2 person). For shared rooms please indicate if you know whom you would like to share with, otherwise we will allocate someone (same gender). We cannot reserve rooms and your booking is not confirmed until we receive both this form and your payment.


San Damiano is mostly wheelchair accessible, with most bedrooms on the first floor (ground floor for Europeans). Each bedroom has a shower ensuite. Please indicate any accessibility needs in the form below.


Part of our spiritual practice is developing our capacity to serve and we have a comprehensive framework to help us develop this.  If you have attended two or more Threshold Society retreats and would like to volunteer to be a bashi (helper), please indicate this on the registration form. We will share more details and explain the framework with bashis before and during the retreat registration.


A small number of scholarships and concessions are available for those with limited financial means. Please do get in touch to see how we can help. We gratefully welcome donations to the scholarships and concession fund to help those with limited financial means in attending the retreat. If you are able to donate please indicate on the registration form below.

Please fill in the form below to reserve your place for the retreat - each attendee will need to fill in a separate form but you can indicate on the form if you wish to share a room with someone.
