Registrations During Covid-19 Restrictions: Managing Uncertainty

Dorje Denma Ling is looking forward to hosting onsite, in-person retreats during the 2021 Program Season.

Of course, we recognize there is still much uncertainty with respect to the management of the pandemic. Although confident we will be able to host retreats on the land, we don’t yet know if there will be travel restrictions or gathering size limits that could require adjustments to participation levels. And it is likely that restrictions will change from month-to-month.

But we need to plan ahead so you can too. Part of that plan is to ensure this is a safe space, so we will be monitoring the Nova Scotia Government’s Covid website closely.

Here is how will engage in the dance of uncertainty:

  1. We invite you to register for retreats of interest to you without requiring any financial commitment. Registration will be open as programs are posted, but payment will be closed.
  2. We will continue to monitor the health and travel guidelines posted by the Nova Scotia government.
  3. Several weeks before the start date of a retreat, we will contact participants in order of registration by date, and request a deposit to hold your space in the program. At that point you have the option to opt in or out.

By following these procedures, we will be able to adjust program size and registrations according to travel restrictions (if any apply) without causing participants any financial inconvenience. The recent news about vaccinations beginning December in Canada is encouraging, although it will take time to deliver to everyone.

Please sign up for the retreat that interests you most.
