Please carefully read through the below Terms & Conditions/Liability Waiver agreement before registering for this retreat.


To reserve your spot on one of our retreats, please check to see whether we are asking for a $500, $750 or a $1000 placeholder deposit. This deposit is non-refundable and nontransferable. This deposit can be made via our site.

FULL PAYMENT (Please check on our site for payment deadlines as they vary per retreat)

When you reserve, you may either pay the initial placeholder deposit ($500/$750/$1000) or you may opt to pay in full at one time. Upon receipt of your payment, we will send you a confirmation of your deposit. The final payment due date varies from retreat to retreat – please check your chosen retreat page for specific payment due dates.

Each retreat will differ in terms of what room/accommodation types are available (i.e.: single/double/triple/quad, etc.). The “retreat cost” tab on your chosen retreat will indicate what rooming options are available. As stated on this tab, if you prefer to share your room we will do our best to match you with a roommate. If we are unable to do so, a supplement will apply. We always do our best to match those wishing to share accommodations with others. Often times we are successful at doing so. However, we cannot guarantee that a roommate(s) will come forward. In the event that you register for shared space and no roommate surfaces, you as the guest will be responsible for paying the supplemental amount due to match your actual accommodation.

Please note that there will be no refunds or discounts for arriving late, leaving early, flight cancellations, travel delays or illness. If you cancel your participation in a retreat for any reason, the cancellation policy described here will apply, with no exceptions. We wish we could compensate people for unforeseen circumstances (injury, illness, work issues, family emergency, etc.), however we have costs already incurred when reserving retreat centers and hotels, in addition to the high level of work required within the retreat planning process. We have designed our cancellation policy to be as flexible as possible in the case that your plans change. But to protect yourself further, we strongly encourage you to purchase travel insurance.

Prior to the stated cancellation deadline, you receive: If you have paid the $500/$750/$1000 deposit, again, this is non-refundable. If you have chosen the option to pay in full, we will offer you a full credit for your payment to use towards registration for another Satya Retreat or Immersion within 12 months from the start date of the original retreat that you registered for, minus a $250 administrative fee.

If you cancel after the cancellation deadline your deposit cannot be applied towards a future retreat and remains non-refundable.

To cancel, it is very important that you send us an email as soon as possible, stating that you wish to cancel to:

We very rarely have to cancel a retreat. However, if we do cancel a trip due to low registration numbers or similar, we will provide a refund to you for all deposits/payments made. We cannot however compensate you for airfare or travel costs incurred.

In the unlikely event that Satya Retreats must cancel a retreat due to weather, natural disaster, political upheaval, a national or global health crisis and other circumstances that are beyond our control, we cannot guarantee a refund – this will depend upon whether we receive refunds from the venues & tour operators we work with. To cover all of these risks, we highly recommend you consult with your preferred travel insurance advisor, choosing the plan that suits your needs.

You are welcome to use any company/provider you prefer for your Travel Insurance. We strongly recommend you contact your chosen provider at the time you are committing to your retreat, as there are timelines for coverage, it is not advisable to wait to purchase your coverage! There are many insurance policies, which vary in coverage. We recommend both Travelex and World Nomads, which offer a variety of travel insurance package options, including the option for a comprehensive “cancel for any reason” policy. Both of these reputable companies along with other trip insurance companies can give you quotes for each scenario. Please refer to our Travel Insurance tab on each retreat page for contact information. You can call their customer service line and consult with a live person.
