Terms & Policies Orcas & Bears Wilderness Communication Retreat 2021

By participating in the Orcas & Bears Wilderness Communication Retreat 2021, you agree to the following:

Payment Policy

The first payment is accepted as a Declaration of Interest payment

You can cancel your place up until 1 January 2020 & receive a full refund of the Declaration of Interest payment

Once the second payment is received, the Declaration of Interest is non-refundable and subsequent payments are refunded in accordance with the cancellation and refund table below

If you miss a payment, we will remind you and give you a further 14 days to make the payment.

After 14 days of the missed payment, your place will be cancelled and any payments you made will be non-refundable and non-transferable. This includes the Declaration of Interest payment.

If your booking is received after one or more payment due dates, the full total of all payments for such due dates must be received before your booking is accepted. For example, if you book in June 2020, you would pay the Declaration of Interest payment and second payment together as one, then the following payments on their due dates.

Reserve List

Once your registration form is received places will be allocated on a first-come first-served basis. The first payment will be invoiced if your application is accepted. Further payments will be invoiced 7 days before the due date and will be due in full in GBP.

This investment is based on a twin share or queen share tent on the Orca Kayak, and a twin share on the Wilderness Bear experience. We aim to accommodate friends/couple/family in the one Queen share. Single supplement is additionally due for sole occupancy participation.

There are only 2 single tents available on the Orca Kayak. These two people will need to share on the Wilderness Bear experience.

There is no formal teaching on this retreat. Please come with the foundation knowledge and experience, having attended an animal communication workshop or completed an online basics course with myself or another reputable animal communicator.

If you prefer a more regular payment plan we are happy to create that for you! The payment amounts will still be due by their stated dates, but we can offer smaller, more regularly invoices if that helps you.

Booking Process

The 10 Orcas & Bears places will be filled first.

Once these are completed, bookings will open for the Bears Only section of the retreat.

Names and emails will be held and contacted on a first-come first-served basis when booking is open (after 10 Bears & Orcas reservations are booked).

There may be third party costs to transfer your place, and either you or your replacement must pay these costs together with our reasonable administration costs to manage the transfer. Our reasonable administrative costs should not exceed £300. We will then refund the costs you have paid.

This refund excludes payments made by you in order to fulfil your part of the trip including and not excluding international flight, travel insurance etc.

If there is no one to fill your place, you will not be entitled to a refund of any fees paid. You are strongly advised to take out travel insurance at a level suitable for all of the components of this trip before booking.
