We hope to never cancel a retreat, however, if we do cancel due to unforeseen circumstances or too few participants, we will refund to you all deposits and payments you have paid. We cannot however compensate you for airfare or travel costs incurred. In the unlikely event that we need to cancel a retreat due to weather, natural disaster or political upheaval, we cannot guarantee a refund.   It will be dependent on receiving a refund from the contracted venue. To cover these risks, we highly recommend you purchase travel insurance.
