Unfortunately, this is something we will not be able to control. If the weather is bad or too cold for this kind of workshop we will hold the workshop at a private location in Reno and refund the participants $15 for each day they did not get to hike.
You will bring everything listed in the Hiking FAQ, and if you want a soft pillow or blanket to sit on that you don't mind getting dirty.
In additional to the time listed for each session on the meditation workshop page we will have drive time to the trail head, hiking to the location, hiking back to the car, and driving back into Reno. We recommend planning the whole day. As it gets closer to the time of the workshop we will know which trail will be the best and which location the most comfortable for this workshop. So the exact location and a more accurate time will be estimated, but again we recommend you plan the whole day so you do not feel rushed.
If you know in advance you will not be able to make one of the workshop dates we recommend you wait for the next workshop in 2012 or schedule part of the workshop as a private session. (Fees will vary.) We can come to your home, location of your choice, or you can come to one of our locations to take those sessions privately.
Then we recommend you call to schedule private sessions to learn to meditate in your home, a private location of your choice, or at one of our private locations or you can wait for the next workshop scheduled in 2012.
We recommend you plan on reaching the meeting place in Reno early. We have a full day planned. Once it is our scheduled time to leave we will begin our drive to the trail head & there are no refunds if you don't make it to the meeting point on time. We are reasonable and will allow you to use the fee toward an upgrade to private sessions so all will not be lost. :)
Contact us and let us know where you live & we'll discuss whether the location of the trail head or Reno meeting place will be more convenient for you. We will make what ever reasonable accommodations to meet you at the trail head before the hike begins.

To calculate your personal Primordial Sound the Chopra Center needs:
-Your date of birth (Month, Day, Year)
-Your time of birth
-Your location of birth
This information is calculated to figure out the exact sound the Universe made when you were born. If you do not know this information we have ways to find your personal sound, but contact Samantha and you can discuss your options. :)
Session A: We suggest you arrive 30-45 minutes before your workshop is scheduled to start. This allows us the time to register everyone and for you to meet some of the other attendees and review what you will be learning for the day. We have a lot of information to cover and the workshops do start exactly on-time. So it is not possible to sign everyone in during the final 10 minutes before the workshop begins.
Session B: 15-30 minutes before the workshop begins is usually enough time to arrive for the second session.
