Clothing & Blankets


Wear loose comfortable casual clothing. We suggest bringing a small blanket or a sweater, as the temperature in the conference room may fluctuate.


Seating, Cushions, Yoga Mats


Chairs will be provided for everyone. During certain portions of the intensive, everyone who is able to do so will be seated on the floor, so you might want to bring a small cushion, backjack or yoga mat. For those who need them, there will always be chairs available.


Food & drink


There will be water stations in the meeting rooms, but you may want to bring your own water bottle.


Meal times will be as follows:

Saturday Feb 12 Lunch 1-2pm Dinner 6-7pm

Sunday Feb 13 Lunch 12-1pm No Dinner- The intensive will end at 8pm Sunday.


There will be food concession available for lunch at the conference center, offering choice of turkey hoagie or veggie wrap, salad, fruit & a drink for $10.


There is also a small on-site restaurant that will be offering a lunch buffet. It will be open for breakfast and dinner also. It only seats about 75 people, but there will be buffet to go take-out available.


There are numerous restaurants close-by. But we will only have 1 hour meal breaks, so you might consider bringing a sack lunch & dinner to the conference center with you or plan to eat in your room. The suites at the Mainsail have fully equipped kitchens and dining rooms. For a map of the Mainsail & all the restaurants close-by click on the links at the top of this page.


There is a Whole Foods Grocery about 5 miles from the Mainsail, if you want to buy food there or stock your kitchen (address & directions are below). In the event that you do not have a car, there is shuttle service available at the Mainsail. But there will be many people, so we suggest getting your food before the conference begins or carpooling with someone, if you choose to go out during the breaks.




There will be free high-speed Internet access via LAN Ethernet cable, if you bring one with you. Wireless Internet access is available for a fee of $10 per day.


Bring your Padukas


If any of you have large Padukas, please bring them with you. Mark your Padukas with a piece of tape on the bottom of each Paduka with your name on it. We will need at least 50-100 pairs to use for the Mukthi Deeksha process on Saturday night.


Course Notes


You are welcome to take notes during the conference, but we will be emailing you the complete course notes, so you do not need to be concerned with taking notes and can simply immerse yourself in your own process.


Free talk by Doug Bentley with Alina Shalev & Stuart Mooney: Friday 7-10pm


You are welcome to invite people who are not enrolled in the intensive to the Friday night talk. If they decide after the talk that they want to stay for the whole weekend, there may be a few tickets available, but we cannot guarantee this. At this time we have less than 30 tickets left.


We will receive a Special Love-Offering to benefit the Oneness University at the Friday night talk. If you would like to contribute, it would be appreciated, plus, it’s great way to get some Sat Karma (that’s the good kind).

There will be no refunds of course fees after 5pm Friday Feb. 11
