March 2020 COVID-19 UPDATE


Dear Great Lakes Retreat Family,
We recognize that with the constantly changing COVID-19 situation, this is an unprecedented time for everyone — a time that, for many, is filled with uncertainty. Our hearts and thoughts go out to each and every one of you.
Some of you have reached out to ask questions about having retreat this July.  At this time, it is unknown.  We want to share with you what we have been told.


Olivet College is assessing the ever changing information regarding their commitment to safety of their current students and summer program participants.  They are not making a decision about summer programming for the next 6 weeks to 2 months.


What we do know is that we would not be relocating the retreat if Olivet college is not able to host our event.  If we have to cancel the retreat, we will reimburse retreatants 100% of their payments.  We will keep you informed as we receive information from Olivet.
Until we see each other again; surround the world in love and light, be kind and patient with your neighbors, and take deep breaths.


Please be safe and stay healthy,

Your co-chairs Kristina and Shari

Namaste and Welcome!
