Policies for Courses & Retreats


Retreat Cancellations Policy If you Cancel

  • Initial deposits are non-refundable and are not transferable to future events.

  • The remaining balance of your payments, if you cancel at least 90 days in advance of the in-person event, we may be able to apply your payments to a future retreat within this calendar year or the next (but only if the current course fills).

  • Please note that we do not offer refunds for in-person events.

  • Emergency Cancellation: If something unforeseen suddenly happens very close to the event such as illness or injury and you would like to transfer to a future event, please notify us as soon as possible so we can discuss.

Retreat Cancellations Policy If We Cancel

  • If we (Angie & Rod Twydall and the Sanctuary of Sophia team) choose to cancel an in-person event, we will refund your payment, or apply it to a future course or retreat with us.

  • We reserve the right to cancel a course with at least 14 days notice, although it would be extremely rare that we would do so. 

  • In the event that we cancel a course, we are not responsible for any other costs that you have incurred (other than course fees paid to us directly or accommodation/ lodging fees paid through us), such as, but not limited to, Additional Accommodation, transportation and meals, so please plan accordingly.

  • Travel insurance and transportation are your responsibility. If you are booking flights, accommodation or other services in advance it is advisable that you obtain appropriate tickets or reservations that can be altered and refunded in the event of a cancellation. We advise you seek appropriate insurance cover.

  • If a retreat center cancels our reservations that we have made in good faith, or for any other reasons their facility becomes unsuitable, or the retreat becomes impossible for reasons beyond our control (including but not limited to political situations, forces of nature, etc), we will find an alternate venue on dates that are as close as possible to the original retreat or apply your payments to a future retreat, but we will not be able to refund your payments.


Please note

  • By making your deposit or any payments for this retreat, you automatically acknowledge and agree to this refund and cancellations policy.



 Thank you for your understanding
