Santa Cruz, CA 95060


Friday, July 13 (check-in begins at 9:00 am) – Sunday, July 15 (retreat ends at 2:30 pm)


Registration is $250-$400, sliding scale (suggested donation). A deposit of $150 (or full amount pledged) is required to reserve your spot on the 2018 BP3 Retreat. Your deposit will be donated to IRC and BP3 (to cover costs).

Please note that all IRC retreats are offered freely at no cost to anyone who participates. In turn, at the end of the retreat, retreatants have the opportunity to offer a donation to the IRC Retreat Fund. These generous donations (dana) are what enable IRC to continue to operate and offer retreats in this way.

Any amount paid over $150 is a tax-deductible donation and a receipt for your tax records will be provided. The amount over $150 will allow BP3 to fund the scholarships described below. Please help if you can. Scholarships are available—see below.

If you would like to apply for a scholarship, please indicate this on your application. We will send you more information on scholarships at that time. Scholarship applications are due by April 20, 2018.


The kitchen at IRC serves all-vegetarian meals using mostly organic products. It is fine to bring pre-cooked canned meat, fish or deli style meats. There are cupboards and a refrigerator in the dining room with limited storage. Cooking of meat/fish is not permitted.


Cancellations must be received in writing and are subject to the following fees;  $25 between May 1 and July 1; and $150 after July 1, 2018.
