You are responsible for booking your own flight to and from the retreat location.

We will do our best to work with the hotel/resort to give you the same rate that our group will receive for the retreat.

Deposits are non-refundable. Any payments made towards your retreat may be applied as a credit for a future stay.
Should I get travel insurance?
Travel insurance is not mandatory however we highly recommend you do purchase it. If you choose to do so, we suggest that you add “cancel for any reason” to your policy.
Although normal trip cancellation will cover you for illness or injury, or for a travel companions illness, injury or death, it is limited to these. With “cancel for any reason” you will receive a percentage (usually 75%-100%) of all pre-paid costs. With this coverage if something comes up, a wedding, a new job opportunity, etc. or if Holistree has to cancel due to weather, staff injury or illness or other unforeseen reasons, you will be covered. *This option needs to be purchased within 15 days of your trip deposit.
We suggest this policy from Travel Guard or similar:
