Autumn retreats

We regret to inform you that the autumn retreats will also be canceled due to the pandemic.

Although the current situation does not appear to be as critical as in May, the available retreat venues do not meet the necessary requirements (in terms of conference rooms, accommodation and cafeterias) to guarantee the minimum safety distance which, associated with the high number of participants, would result in a considerable increase in the risk of contagion.

So, given these conditions and for everyone's safety, our teachers have decided not to hold the autumn retreats.

Future dates will be announced in due course.
