Cancellation Policy

It's important that everyone reads and understands our cancellation policy BEFORE registering for a retreat. We make no exceptions to this policy. We have made it as black and white as possible so that it is fair for everyone. The following is our current and continuing cancellation policy.

  • Should you need to cancel, you must contact us either by telephone or in person. Cancellation received at least 60 days prior to the retreat date will receive a full refund at the time of cancellation.
  • If you cancel less than 60 days prior to the retreat, a full refund will only occur if your seat is filled from our waiting list. Every attempt will be made to fill your space from our waiting list, however we do not begin taking names for our waiting list until a retreat is sold out.
  • If your space is filled from our waiting list, we will refund your fee after the date of your cancelled retreat or you may use your refund fee toward the purchase of a future open retreat date.
  • Retreat fee does not constitute “ownership” of your space. You may not sell, trade, or barter your space to anyone else.
