I acknowledge and agree upon the following payment and cancellation terms and conditions:
To complete your registration a $350 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 depost may be applied toward another Retreat with Meek Silent Retreats occurring within 24 months from the date of the initial paid deposit.
Full investment must be processed on or before May 15,2020. As a friendly reminder, a PayPal invoice will be sent to you. Website and invoice payments are via PayPal and will incur third party transaction fees of 2.9% + $0.30 per paid transaction. This processing fee can be avoided by redirecting payment to Venmo (Tomeekha-Pitre), Cash App ($TomeekhaPitre) or Zelle (818-917-9142). These vendors do not charge any added processing fees.
NOTE: There may be times when Tomeekha Pitre and Meek Silent Retreats may have to change location of venue due to reasons outside of our contol. In these cases, this is not considered a "cancelled" retreat. If you decide to cancel because of a change in venu, your investment is not refundable, should you decide to cancel, and monies paid are transferable to a future retreat. Funds must be transfered within 24 months from the date of canceled retreat.
At this time, Meek Silent 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 Tomeekha Pitre and/or Meek Silent 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 to fully protect your investment.

Should Meek Silent Retreats Cancel the Retreat
The retreat leader, Tomeekha Pitre, 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 – Tomeekha Pitre, and Meek Silent 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.), Meek Silent Retreats will promptly refund the portion of the retreat cost not advanced to suppliers. Tomeekha Pitre and Meek Silent 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, yoga, swiming, hikes in forest, sitting by fire, and other outdoor activites. 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, Tomeekha Pitre, 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. Tomeekha Pitre 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.
