Dearest Community Members,

We hope this note finds you and your loved ones safe and in good health.

We are writing to all of you on behalf of the Profound Treasury Retreats’ Leadership to let you know that, in response to the expanding coronavirus pandemic, we have decided to postpone our retreats in both Saco, Maine and Crestone, Colorado until further notice.

This was not an easy decision. Especially in these times of sheltering at home and social “distancing”, we long to be with one another in person, practicing and studying together. However, in light of the serious health and economic concerns facing the world right now, this decision to postpone seems to be necessary and proper. Please be assured that any deposit that you have made will be refunded, or, if you wish, applied toward a future PTR program. If you have a question about your deposit please feel free to contact Sue Rhodes sue.rhodes@profoundtreasuryretreat.com.

We are hopeful that we can resume our in-person retreats in 2021. In the meantime, we are working together to develop alternative ways of practicing and studying together. We have formed an “Online Committee” to work with our Administration in developing a virtual 2020 Profound Treasury Retreat.

When so-called “normal life” is disrupted, it can be a time of uncertainty, fear, and confusion—but it can also be an opportunity to slow down, to reflect, and to reach out to one another. We want to assure you that we will be there for you in any way that we can.

With a deep bow,

Jacqueline Gallo, Chair, Profound Treasury Dharma Foundation Board Judy Lief, Head Teacher
