Information Sessions, Introductory Days, Calendar
Several information sessions are given during the summer months for prospective students who want to meet the teachers and learn more about the Hidden Treasure program. You can also make an individual appointment with Alice McDowell in person or by phone.
Those who are quite certain they would like to participate in the program can sign up for an introductory day, on either the first or second Saturday in September from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. The cost is $95 and includes lunch. A final commitment to the program does not need to be made until after the introductory day.
The next HT Introductory Day will be Sunday, September 20, 2020 from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. This day is for prospective students who are either committed or mostly committed to doing the program.
The day will consist of an opening meditation, getting acquainted exercises, a teaching on the idealized self image and the shadow, and an introduction to energy work. Cost for the day is $95, which includes lunch. You must register prior to the day by sending $40 to 291 Blake Hill Rd. Van Etten, NY 14889. Checks can be made out to the Hidden Treasure Program.
