Retreat Terms and Conditions
Due to the close proximity of the retreat $500 USD of the $1000 USD deposit submitted to secure your spot is non-refundable. This is to secure your spot and will contribute towards paying the full cost of the retreat (payment plans can be customized with the full balance due Sept 1, 2021).
Once you pay your deposit, you will be added to a “Radical Retreaters” messenger thread for us to communicate and share announcements regarding group meetings and travel coordination leading up to the retreat date.
RETREAT CANCELLATION POLICY
There are no refunds or discounts for arriving late, leaving early, flight cancellations, travel delays or illness. If you cancel your participation in a retreat for any reason, the cancellation policy below will apply, with no exceptions.
I wish I could compensate people for unforeseen circumstances (injury, family emergency, weather etc), but costs are incurred immediately through reserving accommodation, catering and associated services.
I designed the cancellation policy to be as compassionate as possible in the case that your plans change. But to protect yourself further, I encourage you to purchase refundable tickets, tickets that have acceptable change fees, and travel / cancellation insurance.
Covid-19 Cancellation: In the event that the retreat is cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions in the province of British Columbia, I will attempt to reschedule based on group and venue availability to find an option that fits best for all concerned. Wherever possible funds will be refunded including your deposit (in the event I am able to receive all funds paid to secure the vendors). Your deposit can also be applied to the rescheduled retreat if one is available and it works for your schedule, or you will receive full credit for any monies paid. Bottom line – we will do everything we can to make sure refunds are possible for monies paid.
IF YOU CANCEL:
If you pay in full and choose to cancel your reservation 45 days or more before the retreat, you have the choice of a) receiving a 50% refund; or b) selling your spot to another person.
If you pay using the payment plan and choose to cancel your reservation, the payments paid up until that point will not be refunded.
If you cancel anytime within 0-45 days prior the retreat start date, no refunds or credits will be offered.
To cancel, you must send an email stating that you wish to cancel to: email@example.com
IF I CANCEL:
If a Radical Acceptance Retreat is cancelled due too few participants, I will refund all payments made. You will also have the option to choose a spot for a future retreat if one is scheduled. I cannot compensate for airfare or travel costs incurred.
In the unlikely event that a retreat is cancelled due to weather, natural disaster or political upheaval, I cannot guarantee a refund – it will depend on receiving refunds from the venue, caterers and service providers secured for the event.
To cover these risks, I highly recommend you purchase travel insurance as needed.
RESPONSIBILITY OF VALUABLES
Please limit your valuables, as traveling with such items will be your complete responsibility. I cannot be held liable for any breakage, loss or theft of personal items while at the retreat.
PERSONAL SAFETY & INSURANCE
Your safety, wellness and comfort during the retreat is paramount. Therefore, if you experience a fever or any symptoms of illness, please refrain from attending. I will do what I can to reschedule or refund your stay but this is not guaranteed and will be handled on a case-by-case basis.
If you are not fully vaccinated, you have the choice to wear a mask indoors and maintaining social distance with other guests. The house is large with lots of room, however there may be unavoidable moments where you will be in close proximity to one another (kitchen, dining room, living room circle) so take this into consideration and choose what feels right for you. Your choices will be respected and honoured as much as possible.
Disinfectant wipes and sanitizer will be available throughout the house with enhanced cleaning and disinfecting protocols in place for all high-touch, non-porous surfaces.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Keri-Anne at firstname.lastname@example.org
It’s recommended you obtain cancellation, travel and medical insurance prior to attending the retreat. Prior to participating in any activities or using any facilities, please ensure that you are medically and physically fit and able.
If you have any injuries or illnesses, please seek doctor’s advice prior to attending. I am not liable for any injuries due to use of the facilities or participation in activities (with safety equipment and protocols enforced during “smashing” sessions) or during travel to and from the Retreat. Any injuries or medical conditions are completely your sole responsibility.
By sending a deposit toward your Retreat and returning your signed Retreat Registration, you certify that you do not have any physical condition or disability that would create a hazard for you or other participants during the Retreat.
In other words, you certify that you are healthy and fit for any activities scheduled on the Retreat and in which you plan to participate. Furthermore, it is required that you have the proper personal and health insurance to cover your needs while present in the Retreat, in case of any loss of property, illness, injury or death.
