Brendan Kennedy Retreat

Brendan Kennedy
May 13, 2021 - May 18, 2021

Live Online + unlimited access to retreat recordings

A retreat full of meditation instruction and practice with our dear meditation master Brendan Kennedy!

Join yogi Brendan Kennedy in a hands-on exploration of the nature of Awareness and Being. Brendan’s meditation instructions and teachings are accessible and powerfully transformative for deepening our practice and exploring our innermost nature.

Brendan’s retreats are based on experiential learning to decondition the mind so it can start to be what it is; so it can start to be itself. Through practicing and clarifying together, Brendan guides us to look at what gets in the way of being who we truly are. This approach supports each of us toward freedom and from the trappings of ego.

Depending on the type of work that you do, you may be eligible for a Hemera Contemplative Fellowship. Please click on this link for more information.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION. Please read carefully! The Zoom link will be emailed to all those registered two days before the retreat begins. If you don’t see an email from Natural Dharma Registrar or Wonderwell Mountain Refuge, it may have mistakenly gone to your spam/junk  folder or Promotions or Update categories. Contact the registrar at retreats@wonderwellrefuge.org on Friday if you have not received the Zoom link.

PROGRAM COST – It is Natural Dharma Fellowship’s aspiration that no one be turned away from our teachings and retreats because they are unable to pay the full cost. In order make our courses affordable for all who wish to attend, we are offering a three-level fee structure that takes into account people’s differing financial circumstances:

  • Benefactor – for those who can afford it, this fee level helps provide support for those with limited financial resources and assists with the care and maintenance of Wonderwell Mountain Refuge
  • Program fee – for those who can cover the basic cost of the program
  • Supported – for those with limited financial resources or recent financial hardship

The amounts listed are suggestions. You may write in any amount that fits your financial situation. Any amount offered above the Course Fee level will be considered a tax-deductible donation and will be acknowledged as such.

USER ACCOUNTS – With the launch of our new website, an exciting feature is now available to you: an individual User Account with a personalized dashboard where the resources from all of your retreats are available in one, convenient location. For example, the Zoom link for a retreat will be stored in your user account so you can locate it easily on the day of the retreat. After the retreat, you’ll find the link to recordings (once they are edited), as well as any other resources the teacher might have provided for the retreat.

Please note: Retreat recordings and other retreat materials will only be available through your dashboard. We will no longer be sending out end-of-retreat emails with links to retreat recordings, although we will continue to send the Zoom link directly to you before the retreat.

Creating a user account is easy – If you haven’t already signed up for a user account, we encourage you to do that as soon as possible. Please visit the Create an account page on our website. This page contains all the tools and info needed to set up an account.

We will be syncing your user account with the retreat 48 hours prior to its start. If the teacher has made available any pre-retreat materials, they will be available in your user account at this time. You must have an account set up 48 hours prior to the start to have access to pre-retreat materials. Please be aware that this syncing does not happen automatically. There is a real, live person who needs time to do this work.

If you register less than 48 hours before a retreat, we cannot guarantee you will have access to your account when the program begins. In that case, your account will be synced 24 to 48 hours after the program has finished.

Post-retreat materials and recordings will be available 7 to10 days after the conclusion of the event. All resources and materials will remain indefinitely in your user account.

Accessing your user account – Access to your user account begins on the homepage of our website. In the upper right corner, you’ll see one of two things that indicate whether you are logged in or not…

• You are logged IN if you see “My Dashboard” and “Log Out” links in the upper right corner.
• You are logged OUT if you see “Create an Account” and “Log In” links in the upper right corner.

From there, you can take the appropriate action for accessing your dashboard.

Please be sure to check your user account before your registered event for any updated information.  You may contact support@naturaldharma.org with questions about your user account.
