5. Changes/Trip Cancellations

CHANGES: We reserve the right to make any changes deemed necessary by our retreat leaders, teachers or venue. 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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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 require 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 require for exactly this reason in addition to other medical and travel complications that can occur.

CANCELLATIONS: In the unlikely event of a cancellation on our part, 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, airfare, airport and airline taxes).

6. Travel Insurance

We require each retreat participant to purchase individual travel insurance for their retreat.
