One-Week Facilitation Team
Preparation Retreat:
May 20-26, 2007 in Taos, NM

Deadline for Applications:
April 7, 2007

This retreat is offered to those who, after some experience of formation, have completed the application for college participation and are committed to begin their preparation as facilitation team members.

The retreat is held in Taos at the Mabel Dodge Luhan House & Conference Center. The retreat begins with dinner on Sunday evening, May 20 and ends with lunch on Saturday, May 26, 2007. Retreat activities begin with breakfast and conclude about 9 PM daily, incorporating time for both personal reflection and for exploration of the practices and principles of formation.

Because of the altitude (Taos is about 7,000 feet), participants are encouraged to come to New Mexico a day or two early to acclimate. Both Santa Fe and Taos are lovely destinations. The nearest large airport is in Albuquerque, 135 miles south of Taos. Rental cars are available at the airport or participants can take a shuttle (Twin Hearts Shuttle, $75 per person roundtrip, 1-505-751-1201). There is also a small airline that flies from Albuquerque to Taos. If interested, contact Rio Grande Air at 1-877-435-9742.

The fee for the retreat is $1895. This covers lodging, food, retreat materials, and facilitation. Checks made payable to the CFHE should be sent following notification of acceptance into the retreat.
