Hey, guys, I posted this in another area and did not know how to transfer it to this general forum, so I'm recopying it.
I thought that I would start this thread, because attending a retreat is something that I've been thinking about since first coming here in March.
I got really excited when I saw that there was a retreat, near me, in November.
Shortly after, the Admin folks changed it to a Level II, which meant that I, and anyone else who wanted to attend, would have had to have attended a previous retreat in preparation for what was now going to be a Level II.
Much to my surprise, and delight, the November retreat has once again, been reorganized as a Level I. Now, all I have to do is to find out if I qualify to attend.
Are there qualifications? I noticed that it says that an interview will be conducted with each propective retreat candidate.
Orals? We gotta do Orals? God, I'm already shaking in my shoes.
How about the rest of you guys, anyone done one of these retreats?
I had a buddy here who went to one, said he broke some "rules" and he hasn't been heard from since.
Are you drawn and quartered in one of these, as I've suspected? Or am I just scaring myself?
