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, and some venues offer private accommodations. 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 and meet your dietary preferences. 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. We ask that you honor your selection throughout the weekend when eating your meals and selecting food (i.e. if you are a vegetarian to eat the vegetarian option rather than the vegan or omnivore option). In the rare case we are not able to, we’ll make sure to communicate beforehand and provide space for you in the refrigerators on site.

Can I have my own room?

Yes, there are a limited number of private rooms available for an additional cost of $144/person. If you would like your own private room, please email Coco to arrange.

can i do this workshop with a friend or relative?

Yes absolutely! Many people choose to complete their workshop with a close friend or family member present, and it’s a very bonding experience. We encourage you to invite anyone you are close to who might also benefit from the weekend.

What if i can’t get there in time, or have to leave early?

Each process of the weekend is incredibly important. It’s key that you be on site before the workshop starts at 6:30pm, and that you are able to stay until the very end. Please plan accordingly when booking your travel. We cannot accommodate late arrivals or early departures.

What is the policy if i need to transfer or cancel?

The workshop fees are non-transferable. If you cancel more than 60 days prior to the event, the fee is refundable; if you cancel between 60 and 30 days prior to the event, you will receive half of the payment; and if you cancel less than 30 days prior to the event, the payment is non-refundable. Please contact Coco if you need to discuss a transfer.
