IF WE CANCEL THE AYAHUASCA RETREAT:
If we do cancel a retreat, we will refund you all deposits and payments you have paid. We
cannot, however, compensate you for airfare or travel costs incurred. In the unlikely event that

due to weather, natural disaster or political upheaval, we cannot guarantee a refund – it will be
depending on receiving a refund from the venue / tour operator we work with. To cover these
risks, we highly recommend you purchase travel insurance.

• lost baggage
• medical expenses and the cost of repatriation should you become ill or injured
