Dori Langevin, Psy.D, is a graduate of the four-year teacher training program with Jack Kornfield, Joseph Goldstein and other Spirit Rock & Insight Meditation Society (IMS) teachers. She has been teaching Buddhadharma & meditation since 2003, and has co-taught residential retreats with Tara Brach at Insight Meditation Community of Washington; as well as at IMS, Spirit Rock, Cloud Mountain, Tara Mandala, and iBme (teen retreats). Dori loves sharing the Buddha’s radical teachings and practices which empower us to live with wakefulness, compassion and wisdom in the midst of our messy, yet radiant lives. She considers herself a devotee of the Sacred Feminine and grounds her teaching in embodied presence.

Lodging Information
Lodging is assigned on a first-come, first-serve basis balanced with physical needs as indicated on your registration form. Everyone needs to mail the signed registration form; postmark will serve as date for lodging requests.

NEW: Kairos has 13 single rooms and dining room capacity for 15 so registration priority will also be given to those who are willing to camp (with reduced Kairos R&B cost) or share lodging with another person (without reduced Kairos R&B cost) to allow 15 people to attend.
  1. There are six rooms in the two main buildings:
    Two rooms upstairs & two rooms downstairs in the main house where there are full baths on both floors.
    Two rooms upstairs next to the meditation hall in the “barn.” It is called the “barn” because it looks like one from the outside (no animals!). There are two full baths on the ground floor of the barn.
  2. There are seven single dwellings situated at various places on the property and thus are more private and quiet: Four A-frame cabins and three hermitages (renovated single-person trailers). Some require uphill walking although three of the hermitages are closer to the main buildings. All have electricity and heat, but no running water. Drinking water is supplied. All have “honey-pots” for night-time toileting which do not need to be emptied and cleaned until Sunday morning (and they are not smelly!).

One of the larger A-Frames can easily accommodate two people and one of the main house bedrooms has housed two people in previous retreats.

Additional information and registration form for May Retreat will be forthcoming in early 2019.
