Karin, Charlotte and Barbara introduce the retreat, welcoming everyone that has arrived from a distance. They introduce the content and presenters as well as play an unreleased talk from Gourasana about the GMP.
Barbara introduces the notebook that you will use throughout the retreat. You will be using the notebook/binder and tabs you brought with you. Follow the directions Barbara gives to create this book (see sidebar for contents). Use this notebook for your morning and evening programs, and bring it with you to each day of the Retreat.
