Your Questions, Answered
When and where is it?
Feast of the Senses will be held June 22-26, 2023 at a Bed and Breakfast in Alta, CA.
What happens after I put in my deposit?
Once you pay your deposit, you have reserved your spot in the retreat. You will receive an email within a few minutes linking to a short “Configure My Accommodations” form asking you some important questions about your lodging options and other needs. Please fill out the form as quickly as possible so you are more likely to get your room preference. We will assign rooms within 2 weeks of your registration, and you will get a second email with the final payment link, or payment plan (as needed), based on the room you are assigned. We will do our best to match you with your preferences, but exact rooms are not guaranteed.
In early June, you’ll get another email with a link to a “Tell Us About You” form, which will help us curate the food and overall experience to your needs and preferences. Finally, about a week before the retreat, you’ll receive an email with directions to our retreat spot, a detailed packing list and other information to help make your experience with us extraordinary.
Can I pay on a payment plan?
Yes! You will have the option to select “pay in full” or “payment plan” in the “Configure My Accommodations” form. When we email you with your accommodation information, you’ll get a custom payment link based on your request.
What’s the gender policy? Is this for women only?
The “Feast of the Senses” retreat is committed to creating a safe and inclusive space for all attendees, regardless of gender identity or expression. We welcome attendees of all genders and encourage everyone to respect and support one another.
At the same time, we recognize that femmes (women, nonbinary, and gender nonconforming individuals who are impacted by misogyny) often face unique challenges and discrimination in society, and we want to prioritize creating a supportive environment for femmes at our retreat.
We ask that all attendees be mindful of the impact of their words and actions on others, and strive to create a respectful and supportive atmosphere for all.
Can couples attend together?
Yes, couples of any orientation are welcome to attend the “Feast of the Senses” retreat together. However, please note that the focus of the retreat is on developing a relationship with oneself, rather than with a partner. We believe that self-care and personal growth can have a positive impact on relationships, and the activities and classes offered at the retreat are designed to support individual growth rather than couples work.
