2017 Interhelp Gathering @ Woolman Hill Retreat Center
Nov 3 – Nov 5 all-day

Each autumn we gather to journey around the Spiral of the Work That Reconnects. If you are new to the Work, you are welcome to come; you are equally welcome if you have made this journey many times. See the Gathering Flyer to learn more.
Parents take note: this year we plan to offer a children’s program…. but only if registrations that include children are received by Friday, August 18. We will need a minimum of four children registered to proceed with planning the program.
Location: We meet in the quiet of early November at Woolman Hill in rural western Massachusetts. Meals and group activity times take place in a lovely old farmhouse.
Timing: We begin with dinner on Friday and finish up with lunch and cleanup on Sunday.
Accommodations: Options include farmhouse bunkrooms, sleeping lofts (mattresses on the floor) and wood-heated cabins. Every effort will be made to accommodate housing preferences but cannot be guaranteed. The farmhouse is handicapped accessible.
Meals: Meals are vegetarian with some vegan options

     Commuters and campers: $190
     Children indoor: $150 for children age 12 and under

*Here’s one way to decide how much to donate: $5 per $1,000 of per person household income over $30,000. (Example: If your per-person income is $40,000—$10 thousand above $30,000—you are asked to contribute 10 times $5, or $50.)
