Spiritual Friendship – An Order of Interbeing Retreat

A Retreat for the Order of Interbeing

February 1-4 2024 at MorningSun in Alstead, NH


MorningSun Ceremony to Remember ThayDear Order of Interbeing Friends,

We hope that you are enjoying the changing of the seasons…
It is with great pleasure that we invite you to join us in a gathering of Order of Interbeing members at Morning Sun Mindfulness Center in Alstead, New Hampshire.

This wintertime retreat will be full of quiet practice, pertinent teachings, care-filled discussions and joyful togetherness.

We are very fortunate to have the guidance of Dharma teachers Fern Dorresteyn and Michael Ciborski, with their perspective gained from years at Plum Village with Thich Nhat Hanh.


Arrival is Thursday afternoon with a formal check in after 4pm and program beginning with dinner. Departure is after lunch on Sunday, although we would love support for cleanup between 2 and 4pm. Retreatants who would like to stay over Sunday night and depart on Monday are welcome to stay overnight for a small donation to MorningSun.

The cost of the retreat depends on your accommodations and can be calculated by filling out the registration form below.  We have dormitory beds in El Cielo (formerly the Barn), and when it fills we can place some overflow in resident homes.

You may also choose to commute in and out if you live locally. Please register for the program below (as a commuter), and also book your local accommodations separately (you need to do both).

  • A retreat guest space at MorningSun – the Ruby Yurt, is a rental hosted within the MorningSun community. You can check availability and details here: http://rubyyurt.com
  • You may also book at other hotels and rentals offered by airbnb, vrbo, etc in the area. Please note that you need to provide your own transportation to and from MorningSun during your program if you register as a commuter.
  • (This is a friendly Airbnb just a short drive from MorningSun: Solar Living Emerson Brook Forest in Gilsum NH)

Covid Health Precautions:

In the interest of everyone’s health and safety, we request that participants do a Covid test (rapid is fine) in the 24 hours before attending the gathering. Covid tests will also be available at the gathering if needed.  MorningSun keeps air purifiers running in common spaces, and masking will be optional.  MorningSun will also send you a Covid Waiver to sign before attending the retreat.
