Cancellation and Refund Agreement
These Meditations and workshops are priced to allow this work to be sustainable, with a Cancellation and Refund policy designed to support that too.
Cancellations due to C-19:
In the event of C-19 regulations becoming stricter, the viability of running each meditation will be reviewed two weeks prior to the meditation date, to work with any existing C-19 guidelines.
If we need to cancel any events due to C-19, we will issue a full refund minus the booking fee.
If a participant is unable to attend due to sudden declaration of a “lockdown C-19 hotspot” in their area or new travel restrictions across state borders, we will do our best to fill in your vacancy as soon as we hear from you. If we can fill in your vacancy, we will issue a full refund minus $50 admin fee and minus the booking fee.
If we are unable to fill in your vacancy, we have a problem! This situation is not your fault, neither is our fault. We have hard costs that we are already committed to and need to cover. If this is the case, we will assess each event individually and will absorb part of the blow with you and refund approximately 2/3 of the total fee paid (minus booking fee).
Please note: due to the changing nature of this situation, we reserve the right to change our cancellation and refund agreement to fit the current situation.
