Refund Policy

Most of the workshops listed on this site are held in my home or live interactive and on-line space is limited.  Classes often fill up and there’s a waiting list.
Your tuition is required to be paid in advance.
    If I cancel a workshop, all deposit and tuition payments will be refunded.
If you need to cancel:
    If you notify me at least 21 days before the workshop, your deposit or tuition will be refunded, minus a 50% processing fee.
    If you notify me between 8 and 20 days before the workshop, your tuition is non-refundable but can be transferred toward tuition on another class with the same teacher within a year of the original class date.  However, a deposit for that class will be required. The deposit serves to guarantee your renewed commitment to attend.
    If you notify me 7 days or less before the workshop, or simply don’t show up: The deposit is not refunded and cannot be transferred.
    In classes that extend over several days, or continue over several weeks as a series, there are no refunds or fee-transfers after the first class session meets.
    Any exceptions to this are up to the teacher.
I know that when you signed up for the workshop, you fully intended to take it.  You trusted your desire to explore a new direction.  But then, in addition to any of the real surprises life has a way of throwing us, we sometimes throw surprises at ourselves – i.e. suddenly feeling we’re called in a different direction, or that the time isn’t really quite right for exploring new things, or… something else.
But here’s the catch: I’ve noticed repeatedly in life that just as I’m moving clearly toward an exciting new goal, some other compelling interest, an attractive alternative, tends to “magically” pop up to distract me.  I’ve come to view this as the Universe’s way of checking to see if I’m serious about where I’m headed, or if I’ll readily veer off onto that attractive alternative path – maybe a safer, easier, more familiar, less challenging path.  I might explain it differently to myself, but what I’ve probably got is a cosmic case of cold feet.  And sometimes, it’s only been the “green energy” of a financial commitment – a workshop deposit, a non-refundable plane ticket – that kept me moving towards The New rather than veering off into the The Same Old.
So, while there are some options for changing your mind, please view your deposit as a personal “green energy” commitment to your own desire for The New.  Trust your forward momentum!
