Terms & Policies Orcas & Bears Wilderness Communication Retreat 2023

By participating in the Orcas & Bears Wilderness Communication Retreat 2023, you agree to the following:

Payment Policy

The first payment of £750 is accepted as a Declaration of Interest payment, this is a non-refundable deposit.

The schedule for payments are:

  • First balance payment due no later than 7th December 2022: 50% of remaining balance 
  • Final balance payment due no later than 31 March 2023: 50% of remaining balance

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 January 2023, you would pay the Declaration of Interest payment and December balance payment together as one, then the following payment on the due date.

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 as described in the Payment Policy.

This investment is based on a twin share basis. Single supplement is additionally due for sole occupancy participation.

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

Names and emails will be held and contacted on a first-come first-served basis when booking is open.
