I don't think I can afford it. 

Dear sister, there is always a way to manifest that which you desire. You may consider asking for support, reaching out to your community, family or soul tribe, saving money and cutting some expenses, and looking into the payment plan. The Universe always provides so as soon as your soul says a resounding YES, all will unfold accordingly to assist in your trip to Peru. 

Secure your space with a $500 deposit and then space out the balance in 2, 3 or even 4 payments. 

  • one additional payment of       $2,900
  • two additional payments of       $1,450
  • three additional payments of     $967
  • four additional payments of       $725

The early price of $2,500 makes the additional payments even less! 

 

What is the refund policy?

Deposits will not be refunded. 

There will be no refunds if you cancel less than 90 days prior to July 23, 2016.  All requests for cancellation must be submitted in writing.  If you desire to leave the retreat prior to its conclusion, refunds will not be made for the unused portion of the retreat. In the event that you cannot attend the retreat but know of someone who can take your place, you may transfer the full amount of your fees paid to the 3rd party with a $100 administration fee on the condition that we are notified immediately by both parties and accept the application of the new sister.

 

What if I want to wait until next year?

If the following year feels better, then lovely; I will see you then dear sister. If putting it off is your mind resisting the travel then I ask that you get in touch with your inner voice and ask her what she desires. Is she calling you forth to come? Follow your intuition and you will find that the universe will provide the means to get you here. Lean into your courage and come join us in sisterhood.

What travel information do I need?

Please make sure you have your passport with you and it is at least valid for six months before your departure date.

When departing Peru, most airline tickets already have a departure tax included but if it does not you may be required to pay about $30 before heading to your gate. Presently, most tickets that are issued already have this cost embedded in their price.
