All students must register online in advance.  Please make payment through PayPal at the time of registration or send a check to Ewam Montana.  Payment upon arrival will not be honored unless you make arrangements with our admin staff in advance (by May 1st) to set up a time.  There will not be a registration table at the door. Payment plans are available - please contact Claudette at admin@ewam.org to discuss options.  Payment in full by April 1, 2019 secures your spot in the retreat.  If payment is not made in full by April 1, 2019 you may lose your place. 


Montana is gorgeous in May.  However, it can still be very cold or rainy, and even snow.  We will be practicing outdoors much of the time during this retreat.  Keep an eye on the forecast and pack accordingly.  We'll also send a list of essential items this spring that we recommend you bring along to the teachings.

Due to the large number of participants, there will not be room in the refrigerators for personal food items nor space in the kitchen to prepare your own meals.   Two healthy meals per day will be served and breakfast items (such as bread, nut butters, eggs and oatmeal) will be available in the mornings at each residence.  While we can not accommodate all dietary restrictions, please let us know of any food allergies or special needs and we'll do our best to work with you.

Thank you for your interest in this new cycle of Yeshe Lama.  Contact Claudette at admin@ewam.org with any questions.  We look forward to seeing you in Montana!
