  • We do not need a deposit if you are paying in full upon booking. However, please note: once you pay the full amount then no refunds can be processed after a 48 hour 'cool off' period as the money will already be tied up in the retreat.
  • You can choose the payment plan option by quoting 'Deposit' at checkout. This will allow you to pay a 25% deposit. We will then be in contact to discuss a payment plan. You must pay the full remaining balance no later than 8 weeks before the retreat.
