Your Trip Package

If a participant chooses to forgo any services included the trip package, they do so of their own volition and are not entitled to a refund for the services not used. This includes meals, hotel accommodations, excursions, transportation, and any other package inclusions as listed on the trip web page.

Registration & Occupancy Type

We do our best to honor your registration choice. If we cannot fulfill the occupancy type that you selected due to enrollment pairings and/or minimums, we will notify you 90 days prior to your trip. You will be required to either cancel your registration, at which time True Nature’s Cancellation Policy will apply or upgrade your registration to another occupancy type (for example, from shared occupancy to a single occupancy).

If you elect to upgrade your registration, you will be charged an Upgrade Fee. The Upgrade Fee is 50% of the difference between your original registration rate and the upgraded registration rate. If, after you have paid the Upgrade Fee, True Nature Education determines that it is able to honor your original occupancy request, True Nature Education will refund you the Upgrade Fee.

Single accommodations include a private room and bathroom (unless otherwise indicated). Shared accommodations are up to four people of the same gender per room. If you request a shared room but do not specify a roommate, we will place you with a same-gender registrant(s).

Friends and Couples may room together upon request. It is our policy not to put a 3rd person in a room with couples.
If group accommodations are listed as a registration type, please note we must have a minimum of 4-7 participants of a single-gender who have selected group occupancy in order to offer this option. The group minimum requirement will be indicated on your registration form.


Your credit card will be automatically charged on the dates communicated to you in your registration confirmation letter unless you notify True Nature Education of your cancellation and your enrollment in the Trip is voided.

Group Shuttles/Flight Windows

Most True Nature trip packages include group ground transportation to and from the retreat center.

In order to utilize these group shuttles, Participants' flights must fall within the flight window guidelines we provide in our confirmation and "Time to book your flight" emails. Participants must also submit their flight details by the specified deadline. Failure to do so will lead us to assume that they are arranging their own transportation to and from the retreat center.

If a participant chooses to forgo this transport, books flights that do not coincide with our provided program flight windows, or arrives/departs from a different location than the provided pick-up and drop-off point, the participant is responsible for arranging their own transport and covering any associated costs.In the event that the actual arrival or departure time does not coincide with our windows (such as in the case of flight cancellation, flight time change, delay) participants will incur the expense of alternative transport.

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, don’t hesitate to contact us.

Policies are subject to change.
