This is going to sound harsh. But…

There isn’t a refund or cancellation policy. I’m asking you to go ALL in. To say yes, fully.

I get it. Life happens. In the event of an unexpected medical or life-threatening emergency (on a case by case basis), we can work together to find someone else for your spot or find a way to work something out.

It is your responsibility to read and understand our cancellation policies. No refunds or credits will be given for failure to attend or failure to complete the retreat, or for arriving late or leaving early.

Elena Sonnino reserves the right to make any changes deemed necessary by our team or partners. In the rare case of a cancellation on the part of  Elena Sonnino (due to dangerous weather, or low sign-ups) we will offer a transfer to another trip or a full refund.

  • A journal

What do I need to bring?

You’ll get a full packing list as we get closer but for now:

This will be a casual weekend. Pack clothes for yoga and loungewear to wear around the campus or in shared spaces. You might even want fuzzy socks and slippers. The river is likely to be a bit cold for swimming, but a bathing suit never hurts.

  • Walking or hiking shoes to explore the campus

  • Your own yoga mat

  • Toiletries and . any other personal products that you might need/want

  • You will receive a journal

  • Consider a camera, books, magazines, and anything you'd like to have around during free time to help you unplug

  • Cell phones: You are welcome to bring your phone, but please be mindful of using it (as a phone) only in your room

What happens if it rains?

The good and bad news is that we cannot control the weather. We'll hope for sunny skies and lovely spring temperatures, but you never know. Rain boots make for fun puddle-jumping.

What if I don't know anyone?

You will make new friends! Most of the retreats that I have gone on, I've gone "solo" with the intent to meet new people. I promise, no one will bite. :)

What if I want to come with a group of friends?

That works too! Feel free to share the retreat with anyone you know. If you would like to split the double occupancy room, please specify those roommate requests on your registration form.

What type of food will be served?

Spa-like, healthy, organic and local food (including organically grown produce from the SevenOaks gardens) as much as possible. Please let us know if you have any dietary allergies or concerns on your registration form.

Is alcohol included?

Wine will not be served at meals. But… you are welcome to bring a bottle of wine to sip in the evening or with your new friends. Having said that, the focus for the weekend is to go into deeper connection with yourself, which involves finding clarity. (AKA – this is not a boozy weekend.)
