The lottery for this retreat is now closed. Thank you to all who entered.

Who’s eligible for the lottery?

These retreats are not typical first-come, first-serve BWW workshops. They are intended as a benefit for active members of the BWW community. To make sure that all active BWW members have an equal chance of attending a retreat, participants will be selected through a lottery system.
Change RSVPTo be considered an active BWW member, you must have:
  1. Attended at least 3 workshops in the past 3 months or volunteered for the BWW within the past year. Please list the last 3 workshops you’ve attended, or your volunteer role, in your entry form.
  2. Had no unexplained “no-shows” (not coming to a workshop you signed up for without changing your RSVP) within the past 3 months. If you’ve had a no-show, please explain the circumstances in your entry form.
Note: Changing your RSVP to avoid a “no-show” status is easy. If you need to drop out of a workshop you’ve signed up for, just go to the workshop description on and click “CHANGE” under “Your RSVP”. Doing this also allows someone from the waitlist to take your open spot.

In an effort to ensure that as many members who want to attend a retreat have that opportunity, all available spots in each retreat will first be given to members who have not attended a previous retreat in the series.
