Here are some helpful suggestions for a pleasant retreat:

The daily schedule of an in-house retreat could contain a component of sitting meditation and study. You may also include hiking, physical exercise, journaling and other contemplative art forms in your retreat. Retreatants are also welcome to participate in the weekly public Sunday sitting (10am-12pm).  Planning simple meals with the food you bring, in advance, is helpful.
