During the main conference hot meals will be served buffet-style on the far side of the main conference room.  We have six hot meals: Friday dinner, Saturday breakfast, lunch and dinner, Sunday breakfast and lunch.  Vegetarian and non-vegetarian selections which will be served.

Food:  Harbin has both a restaurant and a market where you may purchase your own meals.  In addition, the Blue Room Cafe offers snacks, coffees and teas.  And in the summer, our Poolside Cafe has light meals and drinks.

Venue

Our venue is the Conference Center at Harbin Hot Springs.  The maximum capacity for our conference is 200 people.  Harbin is rustic and hilly, originally built around the turn of the last century.  The Conference Center has wheel chair access to the main building and the toilet (woman's room), but wheel chairs cannot fit into the showers.   

Accommodations 

Harbin offers workshop participants the following overnight options:

A.  Outdoor camping: Bring all your own equipment. There are tent areas to camp along the creek or in the meadow.  In a number of places there are tent platforms.
B.  Bring a pad and sleeping bag to set up your bed overnight in the workshop building.
C.  Dorms & private rooms near the Harbin Pools:  These are available to rent at an additional cost through the Reception Department.  Call 800-622-2477 (from CA) or 707-987-2477.

Fire Danger
There is a complete fire ban at Harbin. This means no candles, open fires, camp stoves or incense.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking
Harbin is alcohol-and-drug free. Smoking is allowed in designated areas around the workshop buildings and on the smoking deck only.

Children
It is generally not recommended that children accompany adults to workshops. If an exception is desired, ask your facilitator and he or she can make arrangements through the Workshops Office.

Parking & Permits
Register at the Conference Center rather than at the Harbin Front Gate.  So, once you've turned onto Harbin Springs Road outside of Middletown, after about 3-4 minutes you'll come to a driveway to the right (the only driveway you'll see along the road--just before you reach the Front Gate).  This leads into the Conference Center parking lot; turn in there.  If you arrive before 5pm, you may park your car in the lot without a parking permit and walk to Mainside to use the pools, if you wish.  If you arrive about 5pm, you may drive your car up the driveway to the back of the Conference Center and unload; then drive back to the parking lot and park.  You will be given a permit for your car by your workshop leader, which must be displayed on your windshield.  During the entire time you are here you must park only in the Conference Center parking lot.

Pets
Pets are not permitted, even if left in cars. Information on nearby kennels is available from the Front Office.

Phone Messages & Faxes While You're Here
You may receive phone messages and faxes during your stay here.  They will be kept in the Front Office in the Guest Mail Box.  It will be your responsibility to pick them up.  The phone number is 800-622-2477 (from California) or 707-987-2477, and the fax is 704-987-0616.  There is a phone in each of the workshop buildings.  Your facilitator can give you the number of the building you will be in.  

Time of Arrival & Departure:  
Check-in time to the workshop building is 5pm on the first day, 3pm on the last day. However, you may come to use the Harbin facilities any time after 12 noon on the first day of the workshop and stay until 10pm on the last.  If you wish to stay either before or after these times, you must pay for these extra days or nights at the Front Gate or Front Office.

What to Bring

There are plenty of pillows at the conference center but if you want to be certain you'll be comfortable, bring your own back jacks and/or pillows.  If you're camping, bring everything you need to be prepared.  You may camp outside or on the seminar floor, but be aware of the schedule and have your stuff off the floor in the morning when the conference begins.  No candles or fires are permitted at Harbin Hot Springs. The atmosphere is casual, informative and fun so wear clothes that are comfortable.  Bring towels, flashlight, footwear for rough terrain, layered clothing, drinking water (although the water's great at Harbin), snacks, bathing suit, massage oil, sheet, towel and be prepared to have fun.  


CONFERENCE INCLUDES

THREE-DAY CONFERENCE with approximately 30 different presentations, lectures, panels and forums, music, entertainment, song and dance and 6 hot, hearty, healthy and delicious meals. 


MEETING POLICIES

Wrist bands must be worn at all times to prove you've paid your admission.  Please wear name tags as much as possible so others can learn who you are.  Please complete an evaluation form for each presentation. 


TAPE RECORDING, PHOTOGRAPHY & VIDEO/DVD TAPING

No personal tape recording is permitted but photos and videos are taken at the conference for broadcast, documentary and promotional purposes.  Attendance at this conference comprises consent to use your image unless you let us know you want to avoid this; then we can blur you out if you're accidentally filmed. We understand that many of you may not wish to be photographed or filmed, so please stay behind the photographer and/or go to the side of the conference center which is not being recorded.  Filming and photography focuses on the Presenters in the front of the room.

If you wish to be interviewed for our documentary project, please contact us at janetkiralessin@aol.com or call 808-244-4103 and we'll send you an application and release form.
