You may wish to pack as if preparing for backpacking-bring all you may need for personal hygiene and sleeping. No showers are available and we are renting a port-o-potty. There is no additional cost for overnight stay. Simple vegetarian meals will be provided. Also bring what you may need for comfort during sitting meditation and clothing in case it is still cool, i.e., warm socks, a shawl or lap blanket.
