Retreat Policies

The terms “Faith Evans-Sills Studio” “we” and “our” refer to Faith Evans-Sills Studio LLC and its operator Faith Evans-Sills. Faith offers, organizes and contracts independent suppliers to operate all the trips listed herein. All trips are offered subject to the standard terms and conditions below. Please review the terms and conditions carefully prior to completing your reservation. Some of these terms and conditions are set out below to draw your attention to the fact that our obligations to you are limited. 

Once the trip begins, we will do everything possible to ensure your enjoyment, and we rely on you to tell us if something is not working. We look forward to a successful partnership together, and we hope that you sit back, relax and enjoy the ride.

REGISTRATION INFO, CANCELLATION POLICY

The retreat fees include everything listed in the retreat description unless otherwise written. Activities not covered by the retreat cost are disclosed ahead of time. We require a $500 to $800 non-refundable deposit to hold your spot. All cancellations need to be in writing. Cancellations will incur a $50 processing fee. As stated before, deposits are non-refundable. On certain retreats requiring significant logistical planning, including our retreat in Morocco, there will be no refunds offered for any and all funds paid. On retreats that are refundable, if you cancel after paying in full we will retain the deposit and processing fee, we will refund your balance only if we are able to fill the spot up to one month before the start of the retreat. If we are unable to fill the spot before the retreat begins, we will retain your balance. The full balance is due three months before the start of your retreat. If you are not paid in full by then we reserve the right to offer your spot to our waiting list or the public, and to retain your deposit. In the case of acts of God, war, disaster or unforeseen circumstances, we reserve the right to retain your fees and reschedule the workshop/retreat.

TRAVELER RESPONSIBILITY

All travelers assume the responsibility to select or design the trip most appropriate to their physical abilities and interests. Travelers are responsible for being in sufficiently good health to undertake their trip; for obtaining the appropriate medical and cancellation insurance; for studying all pre-departure information; and for acting in a manner considerate of fellow travelers and the countries visited. Travelers assume full responsibility for all risks, including but not limited to any loss, injury, death or damage to them, their family or their dependants arising in connection with their participation, or the participation of their family, in the trips, and for ensuring that they have adequate insurance coverage to cover any loss.

TRAVEL RISK

Any form of travel contains inherent risks and medical facilities and services may not be easily accessible and may not be sophisticated. There are other risks associated with the trips, such as theft or loss of or damage to property. Some of the services provided in connection with the trip, including lodging, transportation, food service, and local tours and activities, are obtained from independent suppliers over whom we have no control.

Although Faith Evans-Sills endeavors to choose appropriate independent suppliers to provide services on the trips, we have no right to control their operations and therefore make travel arrangements for the trips on the condition that we will not be liable for any act or omission of any independent supplier or any unrelated third party. The services provided by independent suppliers are subject to the laws of the place where the services are provided, and any conditions imposed by those suppliers. The liability of the independent suppliers may be limited by their tariffs, conditions of carriage, tickets and vouchers, and international conventions and agreements.

Travelers further agree that they will indemnify and hold Faith Evans-Sills Studio LLC, and its operator Faith Evans-Sills harmless in respect of any claims arising in connection with the trip made by: i) third parties, which arise from the misconduct of the travelers; ii) the traveler’s family members, dependents or heirs, iii) third parties, which the traveler, their estate, their family members, dependents or heirs have sued, if damages are recovered from such third parties, to the extent the third party obtains any indemnification from us; except where the loss, injury, death or damage is caused by the reckless or fraudulent conduct on the part of Faith Evans-Sills, or their employees.

Faith Evans-Sills reserves the right to decline accepting or retaining any traveler whose health or actions in our sole judgment impede the operation of a trip or the welfare or enjoyment of fellow travelers.
