If you have not booked a retreat online before, you will be asked to set up a password. This protects your information and allows you to manage your booking, check your position on the waiting list if you do not have a confirmed place, and edit or update your personal details. If you already have a password but have forgotten it, you will be given the option to receive a ‘Forgotten Password’ email.
The information that you give on the online booking form will be used in confidence, only by the Retreat Centre managers and administrators, and the teacher of the retreat. This information will not be shared with anyone else. We will only send you information relating to the retreat for which you have booked.
If you have any queries concerning the booking process or the retreat itself, please contact the Retreat Centre.
Confirmation of your booking
When you have a place on a retreat we will send you a Confirmation email
Once you have submitted your online booking form, if you have selected a dormitory place, you will be sent a Confirmation email. This email will also give you information about the times the retreat starts and finishes, and when to arrive for registration.
You will also receive a Confirmation email if you have chosen a single room, but your place cannot be guaranteed until your reason for requesting a single room has been accepted. If we have any queries about your request, we will contact you. Please be aware that single rooms are allocated on the basis of medical needs, disability, or age.
If you have any queries concerning accommodation or the retreat itself, please contact the Retreat Centre.
Waiting list places
Waiting list places are allocated in order of the date and time that the online booking form was received
When a retreat is fully booked you may still apply for a waiting list place. Do not be discouraged by the fact that many of our retreats are fully booked with long waiting lists. We receive a high number of cancellations and if you are available to come at the last minute, you have a good chance of being offered a dormitory place.
Once on the waiting list you will automatically be contacted by email and offered a place when one becomes available. This offer will be available for limited time only and if we do not hear from you by the deadline the place will automatically be offered to the next person on the waiting list. If you have not been able to respond by the deadline but would still like to attend the retreat, please contact the Retreat Centre office to be placed back on the waiting list.
If you no longer wish to be on the waiting list or know that you will not be able to attend the whole retreat if offered a place, please let us know as soon as possible. You can do this by clicking here: Cancelling.
If you have any queries concerning bookings, confirmation, waiting lists or the retreat itself, please contact the Retreat Centre.
Please respond to the Reconfirmation email, as soon as possible, to let us know you are still able to attend the retreat, or you need to cancel your place
We will send you a Reconfirmation email 8-10 weeks before the retreat starts, if you have a confirmed place. You MUST respond to this email to let us know if you are still intending and able to attend the retreat, or if you need to cancel your booking.
If you do not respond within the specified time, you may lose your place on the retreat.
If you need to cancel your booking, please do so by clicking here: Cancelling.
Cancelling a retreat booking
If you are no longer able to attend a retreat which you have booked, please cancel as soon as possibleIf you are no longer able to attend a retreat for which you have a confirmed place, please cancel your booking as soon as possible, as it is often difficult to fill a cancelled place at short notice, especially on longer retreats.
Booking a place on a retreat and then failing to inform us of a cancellation, may mean that you will not be accepted for future retreats.
We would also be grateful if you cancel as soon as possible, your waiting list place if you know that you will not be able to attend the retreat if a place becomes available.
