  • Additional activities/excursions/massages, etc.  on your days off

Payment Schedule

  • Your $500 deposit saves your space for this incredible adventure.

  • Half of the balance is due six months before the beginning of training. (If you sign up less than six months before training, this amount is due within one month of your sign up.)

  • The remainder of the balance is due three months before training begins.

  • You may also pay ahead of this schedule, at any time.

Refund Policy

The initial $500 deposit is not refundable. The second payment is fully refundable up to six months before training begins, and the final payment is fully refundable up to two months before the beginning of training. If cancelled two months or less before training begins, no refunds are possible.

Travel Insurance

Life happens, and the unexpected does occur.  We’re very sensitive to the issues that may come up, and we will do our best to support you as much as we can. However, we’re unable to provide refunds beyond those stated in the refund policy above. Please understand that we will need to make non refundable payments to the retreat center and other vendors, and so we can’t offer you your money back, no matter how much we want to.

To protect yourself from the possibility that a life event makes you unable to attend your teacher training, we very strongly recommend that you purchase travel insurance.  These policies are relatively low-cost, and offer you peace of mind. Here are a few links for companies we or our friends have used, and you can also find many others if you search online.  (These are not affiliate links; we offer these solely for your convenience.)

Please keep in mind that travel insurance often cannot be purchased until after you have completed your payments for your trip, including both tuition and airfare. We very strongly recommend that you purchase your travel insurance as soon as you make your final payment.
