If I can only attend one day, can I get a discount on the registration fee?
No. Registration fees provide you the opportunity to crop for the entire retreat period. You may come and go as you please and opt out of any time or days as you wish. However, because your table space will be reserved for you for the entire weekend we cannot discount your registration fee.

If you are registered for a retreat and can no longer attend you have several options:
1. You may transfer your seat to another participant.
2. You may sell your seat.
3. You may request a refund. A written request must be received 30 days or more before the first day of a retreat. A $50 cancellation fee will be charged for all refunds. If you cancel less that 30 days before the event begins the entire reservation fee is non-refundable.
