Policy of Terms, Conditions and Cancellation for Private Retreats

Before booking a personal retreat with me, please take some time to read through the Terms and Conditions.


If you would like to make a booking with me, please fill out the appropriate online booking form requesting your preferred dates. I will respond to you via email or a chat and invite you to fill in the booking form.  Once your booking has been confirmed, £150 deposit per person is required to secure your booking. This deposit is non-refundable but in some cases, I would consider carrying a deposit forward to another retreat within 6 months of your payment date.

The remaining balance of your retreat, including payment for any of the excursions with Lynn, is to be paid in full no later than 8 weeks prior to your event date.

Please note that neither accommodation or travel such as flights and insurance are not included in the pricing and you are responsible for arranging these. Please do not book accommodation or travel without confirming first with Lynn.


If you wish to cancel your retreat, please inform me as soon as possible. As stated above, your deposit is non-refundable. If you cancel within 8 weeks of your travel date, the following policy applies:

  • Time of Cancellation – Refund Amount
  • Up to 3 weeks prior to departure – No refund *
  • 3 – 6 weeks prior to departure – 50% Refund
  • 6 weeks prior to departure – 100% refund, minus £150 deposit

*Please note that if we can sell your space, you will qualify for a full refund minus your £150 deposit and an admin fee of £50.

Travel and Cancellation Insurance

Naturally, no-one books with the intention of cancelling or postponing their retreat, but unexpected things do happen, so please consider the purchase of travel cancellation insurance once you have made your reservation. Obviously it’s a good idea to check before purchasing that they provide the cover required.


We do NOT accept any liability for: Cancellations, delays or changes caused by war, threat of war, terrorist actions or threats, closure of airports, governmental restrictions, civil strife, industrial action, natural disaster, technical problems to transport, staff cancellations or other events beyond our control, participants’ medical or psychiatric conditions which may develop during or subsequent to the holiday, loss of, or damage to, personal property of participants.


You may  be asked to complete a screening form prior to coming on Create Retreats. Please read the information below carefully:

Non-disclosure of relevant health information, whether physical or psychiatric, can invalidate your travel insurance and cancel our contractual obligation to you. You should in any case inform me of any health issues prior to booking.

In order to avoid injury, we ask that you agree to follow all instructions given to you by your teacher. It being understood that any deviation by you from such instructions shall be at your own risk.

These events, retreats, trainings are not suitable if you cannot take responsibility for yourself either physically or emotionally.

By signing the screening form you confirm that you are medically and physically and in all respects fit and able to participate in this event.

Pricing Disclaimer

All prices on this website are subject to change without notice. While I make every effort to provide you the most accurate, up-to-date information, I reserve the right to increase the price of your event prior to your travel, but not after you have paid the full amount. Of course if this was to happen I would inform you in advance.

Additional Information

While I have never cancelled a retreat, if I must cancel a specific date for any reason, you may transfer your full retreat payment to another date, or you may request a refund of your payment to us, constituting a full settlement.

Lynn Paterson/One Heart Tantra is not responsible for your expenses incurred in preparation for any cancelled retreat, such as airline tickets, accommodation, loss of work, and/or other costs associated with preparing for your trip.

Before you book your retreat, we ask that you read and understand these terms and conditions. By completing the booking, you will be indicating that you understand the terms and conditions of the booking.

There is no contract between Lynn Paterson/One Heart Tantra and the client until full payment has been made. Full payment of the balance is to be made no later than 8 weeks beforehand.
