1. Insurance

YOU MUST HAVE YOUR OWN TRAVEL INSURANCE TO COVER THIS RETREAT. You need to have your own travel insurance and provide us with those details in case of emergency. Your insurance should cover you for cancellation, sickness, losses and all the usual risks. This is a condition of booking one of our retreats.

2. Booking 

A non-refundable €150 deposit is required to confirm your place on the retreat.  The balance is then required at least 40 days ahead of the retreat start date.  Should payment not be received by then we reserve the right to transfer your place on the retreat to another person at our discretion.  Any balance payments are fully refundable until 40 days before the retreat start date, and are fully non-refundable from the 40 days preceding the retreat start date.  

Your retreat reservation is fully transferable to another person of the same gender over the age of 18, for the same date and package, provided you let us know at least 14 days in advance.

3. Payment

The prices quoted on our website are in Euros. To keep admin costs to a minimum, payment is via invoice and online bank transfer or via PayPal online (you don’t need a PayPal account, just your bank card). If you wish to pay by other means, please contact us via email or phone to arrange. 

4. Accommodation

Prices on the website are per person full board based on two people sharing a double room, but there are single and triple rooms available which are priced accordingly.  If booking a double, the person sharing does not have to be a retreat participant – feel free to book partners coming along for a break.
If you’re happy to share with a stranger, we’ll ensure they are of the same gender. If you’ve requested booking a single or triple place we will highlight this in the invoice and when confirming your booking on receipt of payment.  Full board includes meals, but not coffees during the workshops, which are extra. 

5. Your Travel Arrangements

All travel arrangements are your responsibility and at you own cost. We shall not be held liable for any consequences arising from delays or cancellations in any of the companies you may have made arrangements with, or for any irregularities in your documentation required for travel.

Transfers to/from Assisi train station are included in your booking (there’s a regular airport bus to here from Perugia airport) – provided you let us know when you are arriving and departing when you pay your balance.

6. Our liability to you

(a) We accept responsibility for ensuring that the retreats are supplied as described and that the services we are contractually obliged to provide are to a reasonable standard.

(b) We do not accept any liability for cancellations, delays or changes caused by war, threat of war, terrorist actions or threats, closure of airports, civil strife, industrial action, natural disaster, technical problems to transport, staff cancellations, unforeseen changes in your personal circumstances or other events beyond our control.

(c) We are not liable for any injuries you may incur. Tai chi/Qi Gong warm ups are undertaken at your own risk. We are not liable for any medical or psychiatric conditions which may develop during or subsequent to the retreat. We are not liable for loss of, or damage to, your personal property.

7. Complaints

If you have a problem during your retreat, please inform one of our team immediately and s/he will endeavour to put things right.

8. Cancellation by us

We reserve the right in any circumstances to cancel a retreat, in which case we will offer a full refund of all monies paid.
