Challenges with retreats and how we can solve them
« on: January 11, 2020, 12:41:20 PM »
Greetings all! Would love to hear what you have to say on this...

What is the biggest challenge that you would like to see solved in booking / attending or hosting retreats or group meditation classes?
Why would it make a difference for you to have a good solution?

How difficult has it been for you to find a good answer for the above to date?

For me, I find it difficult to meditate solo. Lets say I want to join a group practice this evening, there is nowhere really that I can find a group practice lets say at 6pm this evening. I have to search social facebook groups, meetup, Eventbrite groups etc and if lucky I may find one. I cant just search date and time at my location and find a class / retreat that way....even more of an issue if you are visiting a new location for work, on vacation etc...

Other issues I have encountered are poor websites so not clear enough what is being offered in terms of experience (facilities, schedules, teachers, booking online, inability to leave reviews on the retreat experience.....

What are your thoughts on the big issues, which are worth fixing and how would you fix them?

Your post seems like survey kind of thing. You want to use this forum for your monetary gain which is against this forum policy. So, better to refrain from that kind of interaction. May be other moderators can add further.

Or, you could see it as them wondering how to make it easier for people who want to find retreats and groups, which is how I read their post.

Okay. That's another way to see it. I am open for suggestion hence I asked others to add.
