It is advised that you enroll early enough to assemble personal financial information that you will be requested to bring with you to work with for one afternoon during the retreat. This will involve the creation of a "Net Wealth Statement" and a five-year "Spending Plan" based on spiritual principles  
Under no circumstances will anyone be asked, or allowed, to divulge any personal financial information. All discussions will be focused on what people learned about themselves and their relationship to money.

Assessing Readiness to Attend
  Following are six statements relating to the purpose and intentions of the Sacred Days of Financial Freedom Retreat. Carefully read through each statement. Pay close attention to both the thoughts and feelings that arise in response to pondering each of them. Then place a check mark in front of the ones you are in agreement with it.
I believe that God is the source of prosperity in my life, and I want to have a deeper understanding of how that prosperity flows through my relationship with God.
I believe that there are Spiritual Principles of Financial Freedom and I desire to have a greater understanding of these Principles and how to effectively apply them to my own life.
I believe that my attitudes and beliefs about money effect Financial Freedom and I would like to have a greater awareness of my own attitudes and beliefs about money and how they are governing the current state of my financial affairs.
I am interested in developing new attitudes and beliefs about money that are in alignment with The Principles of Universal Truth.
I am interested in developing a form of Spiritual Practice that will produce a more financially prosperous experience in my life.

Accepting the Means to Attend
  We consistently pray for Christ to provide the necessary physical and financial means to all who are drawn to participate in this retreat. Consequently, if you have any concerns about your ability to attend, please pray to accept that which is being provided by the Consciousness of Christ. Following is a sample prayer that you can use as a guide in doing this:

My Prayer of Acceptance

There is only one Life. This Life is good; this Life is God; this Life is my Life now! I know that this Life is a source of Infinite Intelligence, acting in me, through me, and all around me. And even though I may not know how to provide the means to attend this Sacred Days of Financial Freedom Retreat, I know that this Intelligence knows exactly how to provide everything necessary for me to be in attendance. Therefore, I fully accept the physical and financial means that are so graciously provided by the Power and the Presence of the Divinity within me.

I now released any thought, belief, idea, attitude or suggestion that I might hold that does not support my attendance at this retreat. As I accept this Good into my life, I give thanks with an open, gracious and joyous heart. Amen.
