Cancellation and Refund Policy for Retreats

PLEASE READ THE CANCELLATION AND REFUND POLICY IN ITS ENTIRETY BEFORE BOOKING. Do not hesitate to contact me (manjapodratz@gmail.com) should you have any questions.

PAYMENT

In order to reserve your spot for this retreat, you may either pay in full or pay a deposit and then pay the remainder before or by August 15, 2018. Upon receipt of your payment, I will send you a confirmation of your deposit/payment.

CANCELLATION POLICY

Please note that there will be no refunds or discounts for arriving late, leaving early, flight cancellations, travel delays or illness. If you cancel your participation in a retreat for any reason, the cancellation policy below will apply, with no exceptions. I wish I could compensate people for unforeseen circumstances (injury, family emergency, etc), but I have costs already going into play when reserving retreat centers. I have designed the cancellation policy to be as compassionate as possible in the case that your plans change. But to protect yourself further, we strongly encourage you to purchase travel insurance.

IF YOU CANCEL THE RETREAT

  • If you cancel more than 75 days before your retreat start date, 100% of your payment may be applied to another Retreat.
  • If you cancel 50 – 75 days before your retreat start date, 75% of your payment may be applied to another Retreat. You will forfeit 25% of the price of your retreat.
  • If you cancel 15 – 49 days before your retreat start date, 50% of your payment may be applied to another Retreat. You will forfeit 50% of the price of your retreat.
  • If you cancel 14 days or less before your retreat start date, you will forfeit your entire payment.

HOWEVER

You may TRANSFER your reservation to another person subject to the procedures in this paragraph. Such transfer must be made no later than September 10th, 2018. In order to make the transfer, the owner of the reservation must contact me and provide contact information for the person who receives the transfer. The transfer between transferor and recipient may be as a gift or as a sale between the two parties, which will be considered completely independent of Manja Podratz and Yoga With Manja. Transfers made without communicating it to me will not be manifested to the final attendee list and there will be no refund of the ticket price. To cancel, you must send an email stating that you wish to cancel to: manjapodratz@gmail.com

IF I CANCEL THE RETREAT

I have never had to cancel a retreat, however, if I do cancel a trip due to personal circumstances such as illness or death in the family, I will refund to you all deposits and payments you have paid. I cannot however compensate you for airfare or travel costs incurred. In the unlikely event that I must cancel a retreat due to weather, natural disaster or political upheaval, I cannot guarantee a refund – it will be depending on receiving a refund from the venue / tour operator I work with.

TRAVEL INSURANCE:

To join the retreat you must have travel insurance. The best way to protect yourself from any unforeseen circumstance is to purchase trip insurance. Travel Insurance can protect you in case:

•  you cancel your participation in the retreat
• retreat is cancelled due to weather, natural disaster, or not enough participants to run the trip
•  lost baggage
• medical expenses and the cost of repatriation should you become ill or injured

My Work With Reiki – A Pure Blessing

How little did I know when I first started working with Reiki. As a matter of fact, I thought I knew why I was interested in learning more about it but really, I had no idea what I would get myself into.

Over and over, when working with my clients, I am blown away by how fast Reiki works, and by how much it exceeds my expectations of what it can do.

Practicing Reiki has been an extraordinary lesson in letting go of my ego. Letting go of what I think would be best for my client, but simply trusting into the Divine Source of all life that healing will always be provided at it’s own pace, where it is needed the most, and only to serve the highest good.

One of my clients came to me with severe disturbances in her life, and asked me to guide her through a Past Life Regression session. For a variety of reasons, I don't use past life regression in the first session that we meet. My client was severely impacted by family trauma, causing a whole lot of hardship in her current life including financial issues, an inability to find and keep a fulfilling relationship, sleeping and eating disorders, plus trauma-related behavioral challenges in her children. When she entered my practice the first time, she was drastically underweight, deprived of sleep, plagued by anxiety and panic attacks, and just overwhelmed by completing daily life tasks. Only two sessions later she started smiling, came in happy and almost bubbling over by wanting to share how much better she felt already. After about six weeks, she had visibly gained some weight, her complexion went from very pale to a lively glow, her eyes had gained their shine back, and her anxiety was gone.

Another client scheduled Reiki sessions with me after her husband had died way too early, and left her and two teenage aged children behind. She was overwhelmed by grief and had a hard time fighting back her tears. She felt lonely, cut in half, like she had lost her vision for her life and her sense of belonging. The first session was energetically very intense. Only two weeks later, she showed up to her follow up session - with a big smile on her face, a loud “thank you” followed by “I feel like I have my life back”! Oh wow, I was so touched and happy for her!

Over the past two years I helped clients with fertility issues, helped them to dissolve unhealthy relationship patterns, overcome depression, sleeping disorders, anxiety, and addiction.

In severe cases I combine Reiki with hypnotherapy and take my clients into a safe, deeply relaxed and highly suggestible state of trance. If appropriate, I include healing crystals into Reiki sessions - selecting crystals to amplify the healing energy channeled to address physical, mental, and emotional challenges.

When things are not going well in your life and the same patterns keep appearing, Reiki can loosen the emotional chains holding you back, after which they can be released so you can focus on your purpose here on Earth - what brings you joy, and how to attain your personal power and take charge of your life.

People who open up blockages and let the energy flow through may experience an intense rush. People touched by Reiki Universal Life Force energy strive for self-improvement and for the higher good of all concerned. People become more loving with each other. Sharing kindness from the heart is possibly the noblest thing a person can do. Have the courage to live your light!
