Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is your cancellation policy?

 

• We reserve the right to cancel the retreat for any reason.
(If this occurs, we will offer a full refund.)
• Any cancellations before May 10, 2023, will be charged a $50 cancellation fee
• Any cancellations after May 10, 2023 will result in a loss of total funds  
 
   
Q: What if I get sick, or something comes up and I can't attend? Can I get a refund?
 

 

 

 

• These are intimate retreats and include meals therefore we need a confirmed list of attendees. That means that we cannot accommodate refunds after the cancellation date.  However, if something comes up and you cannot attend, you are welcome to find someone to fill your spot; if we have a waitlist, we can fill your spot on a first-come first-serve basis. And if that works out, then great. However, we cannot guarantee that it will work out that way.   ​ Q: Do I have to participate in ALL of the retreat activities?  • While we have created all activities intentionally and designed the itinerary systematically to be most beneficial for the day, this choice is up to you. We encourage you to honor your mind, body, and spirit throughout our time together. ​ Q: Is the retreat for men or women? • It is about openness, intelligence, kindness, honesty and fun. We find that these qualities are not gender specific. So if you think you have these qualities, we encourage you to attend. ​ Q: Can I bring my children or pet? ​ • This retreat is adults-only.  • Pets of any kind are not permitted on the Sanctuary premises at any time.   Q: Can you accommodate dietary restrictions?  ​ • All our meals and snacks are healthy, delicious, and geared towards a vegetarian/vegan experience. These meal options will be pre-made and will significantly focus on accommodating vegan, vegetarian, egg-free, dairy-free, gluten-free, organic, nut-allergy-friendly, sugar-conscious, and low-fat diets. Most options will be served “buffet style”, so you can accommodate your individual food choices, based on what is available.  • If so desired, we encourage you to bring your own ready-made snacks and meal items to accommodate any special dietary needs in addition to what will be provided to all retreat attendees. There is a fridge and microwave available on-site for your personal needs. ​ Q: I am just not sure if a retreat is what I need. How can I determine if this is the right thing for me? • We think that our retreat will be a powerful experience for all walks of life. As well, all retreat applicants are invited to have a quick phone conversation with either of our Retreat Hosts; we will be honest with our evaluations as we want everyone to leave with a positive experience.   Q: What if I want to spend more time visiting the Sanctuary or the Island? • We highly recommend that participants take extra time before or after their retreat if able. Accommodations and activity recommendations can be found at the Langley Chamber of Commerce & Visitor Center: and Whidbey Island Visitor Information: (See HELPFUL LINKS) ​ Q: Have another question related to the retreats, or about our services? ​ • Please contact your Retreat Hosts in any way best suited for you, and we will get you an answer
