Note from Rachman: It seems Menucha’s new management has taken a hardline stand on some fairly drastic changes that are listed in the announcement below. I talked to Oswald about it, and it seems after much negotiation that the new policy holds and therefore, the reason this will most likely be our last Menucha event. Registration material and pricing will be forthcoming.
Probably last one at Menucha
Our annual kedjiwaan retreat has been held at the Menucha Retreat and Conference center for over 30 years. Menucha experienced existential challenges during the pandemic and for this year’s event. Your committee has worked hard to secure this site for what will likely be one last visit by Subud PNW. For nearly-all packages, rates are the same or cheaper.
Please plan to attend November 9th to 12th.
What’s changed due to Menucha’s price and policy changes?
- Buildings available to us: Wright, Ballard, The Barn (for 2 or 3 nights) and Boyd (Boyd for 2 nights only)
- This year we’ll have five “deluxe” couples-oriented rooms
- All plans must include meals. And, no cooking will be allowed in The Barn.
- Only 8 commuter spots allowed for only Friday and Saturday. These spots had to include meals.
- After the 8 commuter spots are filled, for only $75 more we’re providing 15 “commuter plus” spots – only for Friday and Saturday and including an upper bunk if you want to stay over Friday night.
- All rooms rates include bedding.
- There will be no Gift Shop.
What’s not changed?
- The great group latihans
- Insightful testing
- Inspiring conversations
- The breathtaking view above the Columbia Gorge.
- The grounds in and around the Menucha Conference and Retreat Center
- And, fabulous entertainment, reflective solitude, and a welcome opportunity to take a break from the rigors of everyday life.
- The joy of spending relaxed time with your PNW Subud community and neighbors
- There will be the Portland Susila Dharma Silent Auction
We hope you will join us for this extraordinary weekend. You’ll be glad you did!
