Many who've attended recent programs at the Hilton
know that we've been able to work very closely with an
outside catering company to ensure delicious meals
are prepared that meet our dietary needs. (The
secret is having our own satsangi chefs work closely
with a handpicked caterer.) We choose the menus,
provide special ingredients as needed and oversee
the preparation. The results have been great, to say
the least ---and we have had rave reviews about food
served! We can look forward to six spectacular
dinners during the coming program. And, there will
be some vegan and gluten free options available each

ONLINE REGISTRATION FOR THE HOLIDAY PROGRAM,
HOTEL ROOMS, DINNER TICKETS AND BUS TRANSPORTATION
Science of Spirituality has to guarantee a certain
number of rooms in order to get such favorable hotel
room rates. In the past, people attending Science of
Spirituality events have reserved multiple hotel
rooms (for family or friends - thinking they would
hold the rooms "just in case" they were needed).
However, during the week before the event, many
people cancelled their "just in case" rooms, but by
then, other people who wanted rooms at the hotel and
could not get them because the hotel thought all
Science of Spirituality rooms were sold out. These
people have to stay somewhere else. But Science of
Spirituality still has to guarantee the hotel rooms
and is financially responsible for the rooms, so SOS
loses money paying for rooms that are not used, and
people who wanted to stay at the event venue are
unable to do so. So PLEASE only reserve rooms that
you are going to use, and do not hold a block of
room "just in case," only to cancel the reservation
at the last minute. A limit of 3 rooms per group has
been set for reservations. If a group needs more
than three rooms for some reason, they will have to
get approval, and pay a non-refundable down-payment.
