Terms and Conditions
I acknowledge and agree upon the following payment and cancellation terms and conditions:
To complete your registration a non-refundable deposit is required as part of your wellness investment. Should you cancel your reservation 45 days or more before the retreat date, your deposit may be applied toward another retreat with Queen Afua occurring within 24 months from the date of the initial paid deposit.
Full investment must be processed on or before March 20th, 2019. A friendly reminder will be sent to you prior to each payment. All transactions are via Paywhirl or Stripe (unless other terms are agreed upon with Queen Afua).
At this time, City Of Wellness Retreats is unable to provide refunds or discounts for cancellations for your late arrivals, early departures, flight cancellations, travel delays or illness. All monies paid will be applied toward another Retreat with Queen Afua and/or City Of Wellness Retreats occurring within 24 months from the date of your initial paid deposit.
We designed our cancellation policy to be as compassionate as possible in the case that your plans change. However, we greatly encourage you to purchase comprehensive travel insurance (see 1.E, below) to fully protect yourself.
Should Queen Afua Cancel the Retreat
The retreat leader, Queen Afua, reserves the right to cancel the retreat prior to commencement if for any reason the retreat cannot proceed - reasons include an insufficient number of participants or logistical problems (e.g. acts of God, war, strikes, etc.).
Should any of the above happen, you will receive a refund. By and on your receipt of the refund, you release The Retreat Leader – Queen Afua, and City Of Wellness Retreats from any further liability.
Note: A Retreat cancellation due to insufficient numbers would normally occur at least a month prior to the commencement date. Acts of God, war, strikes or other events which impede the commencement causing large numbers of participants opt to cancel participation in the retreat may occur in the few days before the commencement date.
If the retreat is cancelled due to forces beyond our control (acts of God, war, labor strikes, earthquake, flooding, etc.), City Of Wellness Retreats will promptly refund the portion of the retreat cost not advanced to suppliers. Queen Afua and City Of Wellness Retreats will use its best efforts to recover advance payments as promptly as possible, and will refund to you the amount recovered, if any.
Travel Insurance, Baggage and Personal Belongings
We highly recommend participants purchase travel insurance to cover any unforeseen circumstances which may arise, such as cancellation due to illness or accident. Valuable items should not be brought to the Retreat, or properly stored while at the Retreat (not in a motor vehicle). We do not accept responsibility for any lost, damaged, or stolen property.
Retreat Activities and Timetables
Our retreat include activities such as meditation, womb yoga, and quiet nature walks. The participant accepts that these activities involve varying degrees of risk and takes part in these activities at her own risk. The participant accepts that the Retreat Leader is not responsible for any personal injury or death sustained in these recreational activities. The Timetable is subject to variation, which may involve substitution of activities. The participant agrees that these variations may be made and will make no claim for compensation refund or loss on that account.
The Right to Exclude Particular Participants
The Retreat Leader, Queen Afua, reserves the right to refuse a participant to commence or continue on the Retreat, if in her opinion, the participant is incapable of looking after herself, if the participant becomes objectionable to other participants, or is a hazard to herself or other participants. Queen Afua will not hold any liability for any loss or expense arising from this action.
Events Outside The Retreat Leaders' Control
The Retreat Leader will not be liable for any accident, injury, delay, property damage or loss, additional expenses or inconvenience caused to the participant or those accompanying the participant in connection with any accommodation, or other services provided within the Retreat. As a result of any occurrence or conditions beyond its control which are not reasonably preventable including but not limited to acts of terrorism, acts of God defects in means of transport, war, civil disturbance, strikes, theft, delay, cancellation, disaster, fire, floods, unusually severe weather, acts of government or regulations, accidents or failure of machinery or equipment or changes in the timetable or schedule.
All information provided on this form is kept confidential and will only be used by your Retreat Leader, Queen Afua.
I acknowledge and agree that the Retreat Leader, Queen Afua, her assistant, Queen Esther, and private chef and keynote speaker and organizers of City Of Wellness Retreats, act as conduits of information and make no representation or warranty whatsoever in respect of the Sacred Woman 3 Day Retreat information provided.
Knowing and Voluntary Execution
I have carefully read and fully understand the contents of this agreement as well as all the conditions as stated under the heading “Terms and Conditions” including those conditions regarding responsibility born by Retreat participants and conditions regarding cancellations. I am aware, that this is a release of liability and a legally binding and enforceable contract between myself and the Retreat Facilitator, Queen Afua, and I agree of my own free will.
I release and discharge the Retreat Leader, Queen Afua and City Of Wellness Retreats, liabilities and claims now and at any time in the future in any way relating to, or under, or in respect of this Sacred Woman 3 Day Self-Realization Retreat whether pursuant to a statute, breach of contract or otherwise including without limitation in respect of lost or damaged property, injury, illness or death resulting directly or indirectly from the City Of Wellness.
