If the participant leaves the Trip prior to its conclusion, refunds will not be made for the unused portion of the Trip. No refunds will be made for any excursion, meal, class, outing or workshop or other activity that the participant misses or decides not to participate in for any reason.

The trip is subject to a minimum enrollment of eight (8) guests and a maximum enrollment of ten (10) guests. The Trip Organizer reserves the right to cancel the Trip prior to departure. If such cancellation is NOT due to circumstances beyond the Trip Organizer’s control, such as war, and acts of God/Force Majeure as set forth below, the Trip Organizer will refund all payments, constituting full settlement with the participant. No compensation or refund will be made when cancellation arises before or during the trip from circumstances beyond our and/or our suppliers’ control (force majeure) such as war, strife, civil disobedience, strikes, terrorist activity, adverse weather conditions, fire, natural disasters, etc., unless or until the Trip Organizer is able to recover any Trip-related sums. In the event of cancellation arising from circumstances beyond our control as set forth above, Trip-related sums recovered by the Trip Organizer will be distributed equitably to the participants after the Trip Organizer deducts all out-of-pocket costs and related expenses.

It is recommended that participants purchase their own trip cancellation insurance. The Trip Organizer is not responsible for expenses, including but not limited to lodging, meals, and transportation, incurred for delays and/or detainments beyond the trip itinerary as a result of circumstances beyond our and/or our suppliers’ control such as war, etc., as set forth above.

The nature of the Trip is suitable for all adults above 18 years old.

Passport: For all non-EU residents a valid passport is necessary and must be obtained in advance. Each participant is responsible for determining their specific passport requirements and for obtaining the necessary documents prior to departure.

Early Registration: With early registration (booking with 250 euro payment) made on or before September 1, 2017 will receive a complimentary additional one night stay. The participant can check-in early on Oct 19 or check-out late on Oct 25. Early and late check-in are for room only, the participant is responsible for their own meals and entertainment during the complimentary timeframe. This has a value of 99 euros, however this offer has no value if not accepted.  

Photographs/Videotapes: The Trip Organizer will be photographing and videotaping parts of the Trip. The Trip Organizer reserves the right to use any such photographs/videos in it's advertising, displays, publicity materials, and publications without obtaining further consent from any participant. Each participant releases the Trip Organizer and its representatives from any liability in connection with any such use of such photographs and videotapes. If you wish to opt-out you must let the Trip Organizer know via email by the start of the event.  

Audio/Video: Recordings of all sessions are possible with the prior consent of the Trip Organizer.  The program facilitator will check with other participants to ensure privacy and individual needs are respected. Such recordings are for the personal use of the participant and not to be distributed into the public domain. 

Release/Responsibility: The participant, by agreeing to this "Trip Participant Agreement", acknowledges that the Trip Organizer and its representatives, except for their gross negligence or willful misconduct, shall not be held liable for any injury, damage, loss, delay or irregularity that may be occasioned for any reason, including, but not limited to any defect in a vehicle, the acts or default of any company or person engaged in conveying a participant, acts of God, terrorism, acts of war, or detention; delays or expenses arising from quarantine, strikes, thefts, pilferage, force majeure, civil disturbances, government restrictions or regulations, accidents by aircraft, boat, bicycle or motor vehicle, or in any restaurant or accommodation; failure of any means of transportation to arrive or depart as scheduled or changes in transit, or villa services; missed airline or other transportation connections; or for additional expenses resulting from changes in exchange rates, tariffs, or itinerary. The participant agrees to assume all risks associated with the Trip and agrees that no liability will attach to the Trip Organizer, its employees or agents, or to any member of the trip in respect of death, personal injury, illness or delay of the passenger, or for any loss of or damage to the property (including luggage) of the participant during the course of the Trip, howsoever caused. By agreeing to this Trip Participant Agreement, the participant releases the Trip Organizer and its representatives from any such responsibility or liability, except as herein above set forth. The liability of common carriers is generally limited and, therefore, it is suggested that participants purchase their own cancellation, property damage (including luggage), and accident insurance.

The Salon studies are participant-limited–maximum number is between 8-10 people per study; this ensures all perspectives and voices are shared. The success of a Salon depends in part on the group involved so your commitment, presence and contributions are significant factors. If a participant is not contributing positively either by not listening to the input of others or arguing in ways that are aggressive or discomforting, the Trip Organizer reserves the right to ask that participant to terminate their participation in the Salon. Part of my job as Salon facilitator is to ensure a positive and healthy atmosphere of learning and idea exchange–this is also an aspect of the Salon that is most appreciated in feedback comments.

I have read and understand the foregoing Trip Participant Agreement for: “Reading the Body Retreat” and, by making my advance payment as set forth above, agree to the terms thereof.
