RETREAT WAIVER – RELEASE OF LIABILITY
For good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged by all Parties, Participant is electing to purchase a coveted and limited seat in The Retreat at the Ranch with Heidi Stevens (hereinafter “Retreat’).
General Retreat Itinerary
Participant is purchasing a seat in Company’s The Retreat at the Ranch with Heidi Stevens, a three-day, live Retreat located in San Diego, California, designed to educate Participant about ways to add spiritual practices into their lives.
Payment and Refunds
The total investment for Retreat is three-thousand U.S. dollars ($3000). Participant may secure his/her/their ticket by paying in full, or using a payment plan, if offered by Company.
Refunds: Company will not offer refunds for any reason once Participant has purchased a ticket to Retreat. If Participant is unable to attend Retreat for medical reasons, is feeling ill, has been exposed to a virus, or otherwise does not feel able to attend based upon health or wellness reasons, Company may, in its sole and exclusive discretion, offer such Participant a credit for a future retreat or offering from Company, to be used within twelve (12) months from the date of issue.
If Participant is unable to attend due to reasons other than medical, Participant will not be eligible for a refund Participant understands and agrees to this, as Participant will have taken a spot that Company is otherwise not marketing or attempting to sell to another guest during the time in which Participant has elected to reserve it via the deposit and payment of balance. Company allows a limited number of guests at each Retreat, and Participant is taking one of these spots by purchasing and providing a deposit. As such, it is reasonable for Company to disallow cancellations and refunds within thirty (30) days of the Retreat. If for any reason Company must cancel or reschedule Retreat due to illness, weather, or any other reason, Company will provide all participants with as much notice as possible, as well as the rescheduled date, if known. If Participant may not attend on the newly scheduled date, the parties will discuss a refund, or will find another company retreat Participant may attend.

The purpose and goal of Retreat is to provide Client with information, education, accountability, and support in the field of manifestation, abundance mindset, and to receive education in breathwork. Retreat and content contained within it are not to be considered medical advice, and nothing within the Retreat is intended to provide or act as a substitute for mental health or medical treatment. There are no treatment or medical-based elements to Retreat, and it is not meant for those who are in need of (or think they may be in need of) medical or counseling services. Company encourages Participant to consult a physician if they believe they may benefit from such services, and/or to obtain medical clearance to participate in activities such as breathwork. Company will assume that all individuals choosing to participate in Retreat will have previously obtained clearance and permission from their applicable personal medical physician.
Participant agrees and understands that his or her decision to attend Retreat, and/or participate in any and all activities available at Retreat, is purely voluntary, and must be independently decided by Participant. To the extent allowable by law, any negative experiences before, during (including during any guest expert or instructor classes and activities as applicable), or after the Retreat is no fault or responsibility of Company. Participant has decided based upon the totality of circumstances that it would benefit him or her to attend, and that Participant would like to attend, inclusive of all potential activities and classes offered at Retreat.

Participant will use independent judgment to determine if such food and/or drinks are appropriate for consumption. While Company will make a reasonable effort to provide meal and drink options that fit within common dietary restrictions or needs, it may not be feasible to accommodate every restriction, and there may be certain meals, or certain portions of meals, that will not comply with Participant’s restrictions.
