All you have to do: Send an email to say you’re coming and send your $900.00 deposit right away…
No need to decide today…You have until April 15 to tell me which package or combo of packages are right for you. Then, let me know what you want to sign up for so I can add your name to the appropriate lists.

Due to the custom nature of many of the items that we order for this event, the lead time required to produce and ship these items and the limitations of tour buses and guides, it may not be possible to add on optional packages after April 15, if you so desire. I’ll do what I can but can’t make any promises.

Payments and Cancellation Policy. Please read carefully.

You will receive an email confirmation when your payment is received via PayPal or check. It will include the code for the pre-arranged room rates at The Lodge at Whitefish and the phone number to call for reservations. If Laura Taylor cancels for any reason a full refund will be issued to the registered participants. Cancellations received on or before April 1, 2020 will receive the reservation deposit less $100 for a total refund of $800 (less any bank/PayPal fees). Due to the custom nature of the materials prepared and ordered for individual participants, the $900 deposit becomes non-refundable for any cancellation received after April 15, 2020.

Final payment for the retreat is due July 15, 2020.
