*This cost does not include any payment to the teacher(s). Teachers rely on dana (literally "generosity") for these programs and there is usually a box at the retreat for this purpose.

Bookings are open for all the progams listed. There are other retreats and programs planned, they're shown in the Insight Meditation News and they'll appear on these tables when bookings open.
