Partial Scholarships/Financial Aid

We do what we can to help more people get training at The Expanding Light Retreat. Funds are limited, so If you are able to pay, please do not request aid, so others in need can be served.

We offer a limited number of partial scholarships for lower income individuals to attend:

Normally these are for 10, 15, or 20% off. Special consideration is given to those from foreign countries with unfavorable exchange rates. We must receive your application at least 30 days before your program begins.

Please contact us or call us at 800-346-5350 or 530-478-7518 for an application.

Check Weather Report from Accuweather

We’re located at a 2500-foot elevation in the foothills, not the mountains. We sometimes get a little snow, but winters are generally mild. In January it’s common to have high temperatures in the 60s. We can't promise particular weather when you visit, but it is very rare for snow to cause travel problems.
