School Policies


Participants are responsible for their own common-sense safety when traveling abroad. Take the time to pick up a current travel guide from your local bookstore and read about customs, currency exchange, language, and culture. We are always guests when we travel and make a point to give back to communities, and to the health of the planet / environment as much as possible. Have a check up with your doctor before leaving town and be sure to pack any necessary medications.

Tuition and Retreat Payments

An initial deposit is required when you register and the rest of the balance is due 90 days prior to our retreat start date. **Prices include all meals, accommodations, and training certification. Prices do not include airfare or ground transportation.

Tuition payments are non-refundable and non-transferrable except in emergency situations (death in family, or emergency accident which physically prohibits you from travel) in which case your retreat payment can be transferred to different retreat. Applications must be submitted and accepted 90 days prior to trip.**

Travel Insurance

It is advised that when booking your flights and any extra hotel stays (outside of the retreat time) you obtain travel insurance to protect yourself in the case that you have to cancel or modify a trip. Most major airlines give this option.

Retreat Cancellations

If for any reason Beloved Retreat cancels a retreat your deposit will be refunded within 90 days. While cancellations are very rare, we reserve the right to cancel the retreat at any time up to 90-days out from the first day of the retreat. For this reason, we strongly recommend you purchase travel insurance if you choose to book your flight more than 90-days out from the first day of the retreat. (see above). No refunds or reimbursements will be made for the cost of flights or hotels booked for canceled retreats.
