Terms & Conditions

Terms & Conditions

A message from Ty Powers:

I would like to provide some perspective about our policies. While you may feel that these terms are unnecessarily strict, they have evolved over our years of offering teachings around the world.

When we plan retreats/trainings, we must sign contracts with retreat centers and pay for a required number of attendees well in advance of your registration/payment in order to secure the kinds of venues you, our students, appreciate.

When we are asked to transfer or refund within a 12-week period in advance of a retreat or training, these requests are very difficult to consider. With transfer and refund requests, as mentioned above, the funds have already been committed to the specific venue.

Many of you have told us that you see that we have a waitlist in place and it should be no issue to fill your spot. In our experience, we have found that it is very rare that another student can respond within the 12-week window, even if they had asked to be on a waitlist. For those of you who have attended a retreat/training, organizing this amount of time away from your work and home life, as you know, is not easily accomplished and takes time and preparation.

Because of these circumstances, we ask that you read our provisions carefully, and confirm your acceptance before proceeding to registration. Please note that it is important that you review and understand the terms for each workshop/retreat/training that you register for as these vary based on the various venues where we teach.

If you are concerned about having to cancel your attendance, then please consider protecting your investment by purchasing trip cancellation insurance coverage.

We want you to know that we are sympathetic to your life circumstances, but we cannot make exceptions to these policies. Please know we are extremely grateful for your ongoing interest and support.

Blessings,
Ty
