Earth Goddess Rising Rules, Cancellations & Policies Agreement
Earth Goddess Rising is happy to offer the container for all of our participants to feel safe within our group. In order to maintain a safe, welcoming environment, we have laid some rules that we expect our participants to follow.
Treat others the way you want to be treated; harassment of any kind will not be tolerated. Please let the facilitator know privately if you feel uncomfortable or if there are any concerns within the group dynamic.
We believe in using the buddy system and looking out for each other, so we ask that if you venture out, take a buddy with you or tell someone where you are going. Give us a way to reach you and an estimated time when you expect to be back. This is for your safety.
You must be in good physical shape, and be able to walk unassisted in moderate hiking activities. Some retreats include yoga. Please consult with your doctor before starting any exercise programs. You must be healthy, and not be exhibiting any signs of illness, cold or flu symptoms. We ask that you test negative for Covid within 48-hours prior to departure. If you test positive, you will have to reschedule for the next tour with available space. See our refund policy below
All participants will be required to have valid travel insurance and be able to show proof.
Since we are a facilitator for your self-healing and personal growth, we ask that you not bring alcohol or illegal drugs to our events. If you do drink alcoholic beverages with meals or recreationally, we ask that you do so responsibly.
The purpose of Earth Goddess Rising events and retreats is to share the experience. We expect you to participate in group activities.
We ask that you show up judgment-free, in integrity, honesty, and be willing to openly communicate.
We want everyone to be in alignment with our experiences, enjoy their time, and get the most out of every retreat. For this reason, we have an application process with a few questions, or we may meet via Skype, Zoom or Facetime.
Lastly, we ask that each participant have clean personal hygiene and refrain from the use of heavy perfumes. Some individuals are very sensitive or allergic to perfume scents.
Earth Goddess Rising understands that power shared is power multiplied. We are committed to assisting our sisters with their personal healing journey. The last few years have been riddled with fear, anxiety, trauma, and for many, isolation and depression. This retreat is one that is not only needed but essential to our healing as well as mental and emotional well-being. We are taking a step forward to reintegrate in a safe and calming environment with like-minded women. Nature is healing, and the purpose of our retreats is *healing: mind, body, and spirit while working with Goddess Archetypes through exercises.
