Well, we can gather at Sudarshanaloka as friends and whaanau, provided we're coming from our homes in a level 2 (or lower) region. This allows for Order members and mitras who know each other to retreat together. Unfortunately, it doesn't allow for open retreats.
Yes, if you're an Order member or mitra currently living in a level 2 (or lower) region.
No, if you currently live in the Auckland region, or any area in level 3 or higher, or are not a mitra or Order member.
For a friends and whaanau gathering at level 2, mask wearing and physical distancing are not required. We won't require this of anyone, and if you choose to come, you need to know this is the situation. You may choose to wear a mask yourself, of course.
We can accommodate 11 people at any one time under these conditions.
The rules and conditions of Covid alert levels are a moving feast! The short answer is we don't know. We are reviewing what's possible as conditions change. Our sincere wish is for those who want to go on retreat to be able to do so - and for all of us to stay well.
