Retreat Terms & Conditions
Retreat Terms and Conditions
I can’t tell you how excited I am that you’ve decided to join us for one of the Happy Healthy Retreats.
I understand that it isn’t always easy to take time away from your life and business, but having experienced the value and breakthroughs that come from investing in yourself and engaging in these experiences, I understand how important it is. That’s why I am committed to ensuring that all of our retreats really do provide you with the time and space you need to recharge, whilst also filling you with inspiration, motivation and support.
To help you get the most out of these retreats, I’d like to provide you with some information so you can clearly understand what is involved, what’s included, what I expect from you, and lastly, what you can expect from me, and that’s what I hope to achieve within this Agreement.
This Agreement sets out the entire arrangement between us, and since I know reading legal documents is not the most fun, we’ve tried really hard to make things as simple as possible.
We’ve avoided using complicated legal terms or jargon as much as we can since we have no desire to trick or confuse you, we simply want to ensure that we start out on the right foot with clear expectations so that you can focus on getting the maximum benefit from your Experience!
