Can I attend part-time, arrive late or leave early?

We do not recommend arriving or leaving outside of the retreat times because we want you to get as much time with your new community as possible, and get the most out of this experience. It’s only 4 days in the end! However, you can still do so, it’s your decision, while arriving late or leaving early means you might miss out on some activities.

Please note that we won’t be able to modify the price of the retreat as the perks included need to be confirmed way in advance for everyone. Thank you for your understanding!

Can I bring my partner, friend or pet to the retreat?

Unfortunately, only registered participants are allowed. While we do love pets, they are also not allowed.

I have some specific dietary requirements...

We offer a variety of options, including vegan, gluten- and dairy-free!
Once we receive your application, we’ll be in touch with more info and also inquire about your requirements.
