Terms & Conditions

Contact Information 

We require a valid contact email address for all correspondence and a mobile phone number so we can contact you during your stay. Please let us know if any of these details change at any stage. 

Group Bookings 

Where a booking is made on behalf of several individuals the booking is conditional on the person(s) paying having authorization from all the individuals named on the booking to enter into this contract. The terms of this contract will apply to each member of the group as though they had paid for their own retreat individually and directly to us.



A non-refundable deposit of CAD$500 per guest is due at the time of booking. 


Once the deposit is received we will confirm the booking and issue an invoice for the remaining balance. 



Balance of the invoice is due 8 weeks (56 days) before the retreat start date.

If booking less than 8 weeks (56 days) before the start date then payment is due in full.

Zendrift must receive the exact amount invoiced in Canadian dollars irrespective of fluctuations in currency and irrespective of any third-party charges at the time of payment or transfer. When paying by bank transfer, please inform your bank that all transfer fees owed are to be charged to you, to prevent that Zendrift receiving a diminished amount.



If you cancel at any time the CAD$500 deposit is forfeited. 

For cancelations made within 56 days of the start date, Zendrift will retain100% of the cost of the retreat. If another person can be found to fill the spot, then we may offer you a partial refund at our discretion.

We reserve the right in any circumstances to cancel a retreat, in which case we will offer a full refund. 

Bookings are for the stated period of the retreat. There are no refunds for any unused portion of the retreat.
