Workshop Content and Topics
Lodging and Registration

Prices and Registration

The Participant Workshop Fee includes tuition and meals (Friday dinner, Saturday lunch, Saturday dinner, Sunday lunch, drinks and snacks). This does not include lodging.

Anna Maria Island is located about an hour south of Tampa, Florida. This is a small island with one principle road and two bridges to the mainland for cars. Our retreat cottage is located at the north end of the island, on the beach. Traffic entering and exiting the island can be very heavy at times and it is recommended that those not familiar with local traffic patterns consider staying at a nearby motel/hotel. The cottage address will be given upon registration. There is parking for cars at the cottage, but car-pooling by locals is encouraged. Shuttle services from Tampa International Airport are available for those flying.

Meals, snacks and drinks are included in the workshop price. If you have food allergies or concerns please send them via email to The menu is flexible, and reflects those participating. We use available organic produce, nuts and seeds, with grass-fed and/or free range poultry, meat and dairy products. Saturday and Sunday breakfasts are on your own. There are many small local cafes along the beach and in town. Feel free to bring special goodies that you enjoy, and if you like, a little bit extra to share.

There are many small and medium size motels and hotels within walking distance of the cottage, which is on the beach within Anna Maria, just a few blocks north of Manatee. A good resource for local lodging is here.

Plan on wearing loose, comfortable clothing. The cottage will get beach breezes off the ocean which can be chilly , especially in the evening or early morning, and bright sun that is very warm during mid-day. We will be on the beach when the weather invites us, on the large front porch, and in the living room.
