$45.00 + 13% HST



If you have hit the wrong button and wish to take a date out of your cart, just hit the small green up arrow in the shopping cart and that item will be removed from your cart.

If Sue receives your cancellation notice up to five days in advance of the retreat, (for instance, if the retreat is on a Saturday, she must hear from you by midnight on the previous Sunday) you may choose to apply your deposit to a future retreat that has space. If there is no scheduled Sanctuary that works for you and has space available you will receive a refund (minus a $20 administration fee).

If you cancel with less than five days notice, (in the example above, for instance, it would be anytime Monday or later) and your spot cannot be filled from a waiting list, no refund will be made. However, you are permitted to sell or gift your spot for that date to another person. If you do this, please email or call Sue right away to provide the contact information of your replacement. Since Sue provides lunch, it is important that she know of any dietary restrictions etc.

NOTE: *If a Sanctuary is cancelled for any reason, such as severe winter weather creates dangerous driving conditions, Sue will call all registered participants as soon as she has made the decision to cancel. In this situation, participants may request a full refund or transfer their payment to a future retreat date.
