Cancellation Policy



If a cancellation is made after after May 1st there will be no refund and full balance will be due. If you've paid the full balance and cancel after May 1st, you forfeit the full amount. If we cancel the retreat due to low participation, all money paid to us by you will be returned. Unfortunately we cannot compensate you for any flights or other travel arrangements that you have already made. In the unlikely event that we cancel the retreat due to weather or natural disaster we cannot guarantee a full refund – it will depend on our receiving a refund from the participating “field trip” venues we’re working with.

Please note that there will be no refunds or discounts for arriving late, leaving early, flight cancellations, travel delays or illness. If you cancel your participation for any reason, the cancellation policy will apply, with no exceptions. However, if you cannot attend, you can transfer your spot to a friend, or family member. We wish we could compensate people for unforeseen circumstances (injury, family emergency, etc.) but we have costs already incurred when reserving venues and vendors.

To cancel, you must send an email stating that you wish to cancel to:

*Once you are registered for your retreat, you will be emailed more info about what to bring and some  more  details. You must submit your Cancellation Agreement, Personal Profile and Waiver of Liability and Release Agreement 60 days prior to your retreat. 

We strongly recommend you purchase travel insurance which will come in handy should you encounter any unforeseen medical issues prior to traveling or while traveling, last minute flight cancellation, lost baggage or other issues that effect your trip.



Comprehensive travel insurance to cover theft, loss and medical problems is highly recommended. Some policies specifically exclude dangerous activities such as scuba diving, motorcycling, skiing and even trekking: read the fine print.

Check that the policy covers ambulances or an emergency flight home.

Find out in advance if your insurance plan will make payments directly to providers or reimburse you later for overseas health expenditures.

If you have to claim later, make sure you keep all documentation.

Paying for your airline ticket with a credit card often provides limited travel accident insurance – ask your credit card company what it is prepared to cover.
