Please arrive between 2:00 pm and 5:00 pm on the day the class begins. This allows you to check in and get your bed. Please arrive on time in order to serve everything efficiently. If you are expected to arrive late please contact the registrar by replying to the course confirmation email indicating arrival time. If there has been an emergency and you are late on the day the course begins, please contact the center as soon as possible at +39 055 804818.
On the day of registration, a light meal will be served at 6:00 pm followed by a pre-course orientation talk.
You are required to stay until the course is completed, which is about 6:30 am on the last day of the course. Even though the course ends at 6:30, please consider some time for clean-up before you leave.
A simple vegetarian menu is offered during the course, developed to meet the needs of most students. The course organizers are committed to preparing a complete, balanced menu suitable for meditation, without adhering to any particular dietary philosophy. If, for health reasons, any student has been prescribed a particular diet, the organizers should be informed when completing the registration form so that the request can be met.
