Deposits & Payment: Deposits made are considered partial payment toward the retreat's cost and will hold your spot. Deposits are non-refundable unless another person fills your spot. At this point, the deposit will be refunded minus an administration fee (CAD 125), or you may choose to use the full deposit towards a future retreat if the spot you put on hold is filled.
If you fail to submit the final registration balance fees by the required date (June 21, 2021), you will forfeit your spot, and the retreat facilitator is free to open that spot to the public. Your deposit will not be refunded in such a circumstance.
Once your full payment has been processed, it is non-refundable. However, if you can fill the spot, your payment will be refunded minus an administration fee (CAD 250).
If you become ill due to COVID-19 and cannot attend the retreat, you must provide medical proof of illness. A refund will be issued minus facilitator costs (any room charges that may occur due to withdrawal from the retreat and administration charges (CAD 250).
If circumstances arise due to the retreat being unable to run, such as facilitator illness, COVID-19 health pandemic restrictions set by governing authorities, facilitator casualty, an act of God or any other cause beyond the retreat facilitator’s control, all tuition paid, including the deposit, will be returned, with no further liability.
Additional money spent on travel preparation will not fall under the retreat facilitator’s responsibility. Travel insurance is strongly recommended. Delays or additional expenses created by weather, illness, etc., are the responsibility of the participants.
Should it be necessary to cancel the workshop due to underbooking, a full refund will be provided. Refunds will occur 30 days before the scheduled retreat date. After that point, only severe and unforeseen circumstances will cancel the retreat.
