Credit cards on file may be charged outstanding remaining balances at this time, unless you confirm cancellation with us directly. Refunds are available only according to the conditions described below. If you do not think you can pay in time, please contact us. Payment can be made via PayPal.
4. Cancellations Policy & Deposits
By reserving your space through placing your deposit with us, you are agreeing to the stated policies here in our Agreement. Please read in full.
If you wish to cancel your retreat, you must notify us in writing. Once we’ve received your notice, cancellation will take effect subject to the following:
If cancellation takes place within 7 days of booking, 100% of your payment is refundable including the deposit, unless retreat start date is less than 60 days from booking date (as we do not offer any refunds within 60 days of a retreat).
If cancellation takes place 120 or more days prior to the retreat start date, any payments made will be refunded within 30 days of cancellation, plus 75% of your deposit.
If cancellation takes place between 90-120 days prior to the retreat start date, any payments made will be refunded within 30 days of cancellation, plus 50% of your deposit.
If cancellation takes place between 60-90 days prior to the retreat start date, 100% of your deposit will be forfeited and any additional payments will be refunded.
If cancellation takes place under 60 days prior to the start date all payments will be forfeited.
Important: If you do not submit full payment 60 days before the retreat, and do not cancel your registration or respond to our communication, we retain the right to charge the remaining balance due to the credit card provided and release your spot. Any amount forfeited, which has not then been paid to us by you, will be recovered from you by us as a debt due and payable. Consider travel insurance to protect the costs of your trip in the case of injury, illness, or inability to attend for other reasons.
5. Changes/Trip Cancellations
We reserve the right to make any changes deemed necessary by our team. In the event that we need to make a last minute change to the venue, the teacher, the itinerary, or any aspect of the retreat due to unforeseen circumstances (natural disaster, illness, civil unrest, death, closure, or any other unforeseen circumstance) we will offer the following to our guests that do not want to attend based on changes:
Transfer your deposit to a future retreat to be taken within a year from the date of the current retreat. All other payments will be forfeited and we will not be liable for refunding or reimbursing any amount beyond the transfer of the deposit.
If you choose to completely cancel the retreat based on the changes, normal cancellation policies apply (see above). We are not responsible for reimbursing you or refunding you for any amount paid if you decide to cancel based on these changes.
Please note that we recommend travel insurance so that you can make a claim based on the changes and have some of your expenses reimbursed by the travel insurance that we recommend for exactly this reason in addition to other medical and travel complications that can occur.
CANCELLATIONS: In the rare case of a cancellation on our behalf, we will offer a transfer to another trip or a full refund of your funds. We are not responsible for any expenses or damages incurred as a result of trip cancellation including preparation costs, airline tickets, travel documents, or other expenses. We reserve the right to cancel any trip prior to departure in the event that there are too few people booked in which case you will be given a full refund of any and all payments made to us. You will not be entitled to claim any additional amounts or seek any compensation for any injury, loss, expenses, or damage (either direct or consequential) or for any loss of time or inconvenience which may result from such cancellation (including but not limited to visa, passport and vaccination charges, or departure, gear purchases, airport and airline taxes).
