In an effort to be proactive as the coronavirus continues to spread, Natural Dharma Fellowship does not want to overreact, but rather to take the “middle way.” We have been closely monitoring the situation as it is shifting and changing. At this point, Wonderwell Mountain Refuge is open and plans to stay open. That being said, we need to work together to keep the community healthy.
If you are coughing or sneezing, please don’t come on retreat. If you wake up in the morning and have those first, faint signals that your body sends out when you are coming down with something, please take care of yourself at home. But be assured that if sickness does prevent you from attending a retreat in March or April, we will refund your payment or reschedule you to a future retreat in 2020.
In addition, we are proactively taking steps to make Wonderwell a healthy environment for all. Wewill continue to pay close attention to information and recommendations from the CDC and the state health department.
We also encourage everyone to follow the common-sense suggestions that we have all been hearing (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/about/prevention-treatment.html). If you are registered for anupcoming retreat, any necessary communications will be sent to your email address by the registrar. Please check before leaving for the retreat. All general changes to meet ever-evolving circumstances will be posted in the news sections of the NDF and Wonderwell website.
Thank you for embodying compassion for yourself and for others,
The response team at Natural Dharma Fellowship
