Module 1 // Retreat

SpiritPlanning Academy in Costa Rica

Your soul is longing for who you really are while surrounding tries to squeeze you into something that you are not. This is why we need our private temples where our true self can glow and grow. At that point we start to need SpiritPlanning.

Your registration

To register for our training modules, an informal, written registration via email is required. After you have registered for a module, you will receive a registration confirmation with a proforma invoice by email within 24 hours. When registering, please indicate to which address (private/institution) the invoice should be issued.

Within 10 working days after receiving the proforma invoice a deposit of 500 USD for our retreats abroad and 200 Euro for our workshops in Düsseldorf has to be paid by bank transfer. The final payment will be made after the minimum number of participants has been reached or after the registration deadline.

After receipt of the deposit you will be considered as bindingly registered.

If the course does not take place, you will be informed in time. Please register early, as the number of places is limited and some courses may be fully booked well in advance. The registration deadline is stated in the course announcement. If there are still places available after this date, we will also accept your registration at short notice.
In our seminar description you will find the respective course fees. These include the legal value added tax. It is not possible to pay your course fee directly on site.

If you register after the registration deadline, we will add a € 150 handling fee to the course fee to cover additional organizational expenses. The course fee includes the 5-7 day workshop, the seminar materials (folder with script and note material), our meals, snacks and drinks during breaks, a vegetarian lunch daily and a daily "Mindful Morning Session". When registering for our retreats, accommodation costs may also be included in the course price. Details can be found in the respective announcements. You will receive your confirmation of participation and a certificate during the course.

If the course fee is not received on our account by the deadline, we reserve the right to make your place available to another participant. Please note that without an active cancellation, you will always have to pay the full course fee.

Cancellations can be made at any time in writing by email at kontakt@spiritplanning.de. Cancellations are only valid if they are received directly by the organizer (GLB). A phone call to the venue will not suffice. The deposit amounts (500 USD for our retreats abroad and 200 Euro for our workshops in Düsseldorf) correspond to the cancellation fees and will therefore not be refunded.

From the 1st day after the registration deadline until 7 days before the course starts, we charge a cancellation fee of 50% of the booking value. From 7 days before the start of the course or in case of no-show without timely cancellation (see above), the full participation fee is due. The cancellation fee is equal to the deposit amount and must be paid in full regardless of the reason for cancellation or no-show.

Of course, a substitution of the registered participant is possible.

Bei der Aufnahme in das Programm muss der Antragsteller eine nicht erstattungsfähige Anzahlung von 500 USD leisten, um sich seinen Platz im Programm zu sichern. Diese Anzahlung ist unter keinen Umständen erstattungsfähig.

50% des verbleibenden Programmbetrags sind 30 Tage vor Beginn des Programms fällig, und die Restzahlung wird bei Ankunft am Programm fällig. Wir bieten keine Rückerstattungen für geleistete Zahlungen an.

Bei höherer Gewalt oder Notfällen und einer Absage vor Kursbeginn wird ein Regenscheck ausgestellt.

Wenn ein Student nach Beginn des Programms aussteigen muss, wird zu diesem Zeitpunkt eine Entscheidung bezüglich eines Regenschecks getroffen, aber in keinem Fall erfolgt eine Rückerstattung.

Das Programm behält sich das Recht vor, Schulungen vor Beginn abzusagen. Geleistete Zahlungen werden in diesem Fall zurückerstattet.
