If you have any questions you can ask them during our conference call, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

These meetings are mandatory and an essential part of holding the space for the workshops participants.

If you absolutely can not make the call, please email client care by the end of the day Friday (before the call) and you will receive a recording that must be listened to within 48 hours. Thank you.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What are the accommodations like at the workshop?
We handpick our venue sites for comfort, accessibility, and a concentration on the natural beauty around us. Each site is different, but all feature stunning locations with comfortable accommodations for each participant. Most rooms are shared with one or two other participants. We put a lot of thought and effort into making sure each participant is comfortable and well-resourced, asking for sleeping preferences before the workshop. An on-site event manager is there to see to any concerns that come up.
What is the food like at the workshop?
We have an on-site chef present to cook healthy meals for all participants, who attempts to cook with as much organic, natural food as possible. We ask for any food allergies or restrictions in the questionnaire, and we can accommodate most needs, including dairy-free, gluten-free and vegetarian. Please let us know if you have any dietary restrictions or concerns, and we will do all that we can to accommodate those needs. In the rare case that we are not able to, we’ll make sure to communicate that beforehand and provide space for you in the refrigerators on site.
can i do this workshop with a friend or relative?
Yes absolutely! Many people choose to staff the workshop of a close friend or family member, and it’s a very bonding experience. We encourage you to invite anyone who you are close to, and who might also benefit from the weekend.
What if i can’t get there in time, or have to leave early?
You cannot staff unless you can be present for the entirety of staffing. If a conflict comes up that would make it so that you cannot be present the entire time, please consult the cancellation policy, and contact our Client Care Specialist immediately.
