  • Refunds past deadline may be made upon request on compassionate grounds, such as hospitalization or death in the family. The decision is made by the Retreat Manager and Tanto.
  • If a registrant cannot come because of a contagious illness, the full retreat fee is available as a credit towards future retreats.


  • When there is a cancellation, the next person on the Waitlist is notified and is given 48 hours to commit, unless the retreat is less than 48 hours away. Full payments by Paypal upon notice of participation are appreciated. However, participants added from the waitlist less than two weeks prior and who are paying by check: please bring the check to the retreat and give it to the Registrar or Retreat Manager.
