The 2014 Introductory Courage to Teach Retreat will be held at the lovely Santa Sabina Center located adjacent to the Dominican campus at 25 Magnolia Way, San Rafael, California. Each summer we offer an introductory retreat experience for those who are not ready to or capable of committing to an entire seasonal series of retreats.
July 29-31, 2014
The cost includes single occupancy lodging, meals, and materials.
The actual program cost is $600 per retreat. This reduced rate is made possible for k-12 educators by a generous grant from the Kalliopeia Foundation.
Participants may check into their rooms beginning at 4:00 p.m. Tuesday afternoon. We begin our first session after dinner on Tuesday and conclude with lunch on Thursday. Upon registration and deposit, participants will receive a packet of information, including directions and preparatory materials.
