Retreat Terms and Conditions
RETREAT TERMS AND CONDITIONS – PLEASE READ BEFORE YOU SUBMIT YOUR NON-REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT
The total cost of the retreat is $2750 CAD that includes a deposit of $1000 CAD to secure your spot which is non-refundable. For those on payment plans, the full balance is due on or before September 15, 2022). Customized payment plans can be arranged with Keri-Anne directly.
Once you pay your deposit, you will be added to a “Radical Retreaters Spring 2022” messenger thread for us to communicate and connect regarding retreat updates, scheduled group calls 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 early on 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 paid will be refunded or applied to a rescheduled retreat date.
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.
Participants are asked to respect and comply with the recommended safety practices and procedures to reduce the spread before the retreat, while travelling and attending the Radical Acceptance Retreat.
Upon arrival, participants must agree to taking a rapid covid test (15 minutes wait time) at the venue to reduce the concern for spreading the virus. Until all tests are confirmed to be negative, the group will honour “grocery store” protocols that include social distancing and wearing masks indoors. Once the “all clear” is confirmed, you are free to remove your mask and hug it out!
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.
