Fees and Housing Options
The retreat cost is comprehensive and includes lodging, all meals and the program. The retreat cost varies depending on your lodging selection and budget with options for lodging rooms (single, double and triple) and tents at the campsite (shared or single). We encourage you to apply early, particularly if you want a single room since these go quickly. Our refund policy along with other great information can be located on our FAQ page. Please also look at our generosity policy below in the Scholarships section of this page.
Accessible Housing: The Ferry Beach Retreat Center has two accessible rooms available for individuals with physical limitations. For more information about accessible rooms and their pricing contact us.
Daily meal choices accommodate a range of needs including omnivore, vegetarian, vegan and gluten free. We query attendees before the retreat to make sure everyone’s preferences are part of the meal planning. Additionally if someone has an other special dietary needs or allergies we make sure those are worked in.

“Generosity is a willingness to give, to open without philosophical or pious or religious motives, just simply doing what is required at any moment in any situation” – Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche</br></br>
The Profound Treasury Dharma Foundation (“PTDF”) is committed to offering the authentic transmission of the Venerable Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche’s presentation of the Dharma to all who wish to receive it, regardless of financial capacity, through retreats and other means.
Technically, PTDF is a not for profit corporation. But really we are a community of student teachers and teacher students making our way along the path together and alone.
We are funded by donations and fees, and supported by volunteers who work for free, program attendance, or small stipends. Our intention is to cultivate an inclusive, supportive, delighted, and disciplined community experience in which all who are committed can participate.
In the context of the retreats, we use donations and fees to fund the cost of the space to study and practice and gather and discuss, the food and drink for sustenance and celebration, and the teachers and staff who exchange wisdom and experience with students and each other.
We also use donations and fees to offer financial aid those who need it. Our intention is to distribute scholarships fairly. If it would make the difference between attending and not attending the retreat, we encourage you to request scholarship support.
When you fill out the retreat application there’s an opportunity to request scholarship funds. Decisions on financial support are made concurrently with the application review.
