Terms and Conditions

All retreats require at least the deposit upon registering. All participants are expected to stay for the length of the retreat, which includes arriving on time and staying until the end of the retreat. The full course fee will be charged, even if it is necessary to leave the retreat early.

Sliding Scale: TNI is dedicated to offering affordable rates to all. We offer a sliding scale with low, mid and high rates that allow retreatants to pay according to their means. Paying at the low rate covers the minimum expense of holding a retreat. The high rate helps ensure TNI’s viability as an organization. The deposit is included in all of our fees.

Dana (Donations): Fees cover the cost of room and board. Following an ancient Buddhist tradition, the teachings are freely offered. Donations to the teachers are invited at the end of the retreat.

Late Registration Fee: For registrations less than 14 days before the start of a retreat, add $30 to the sliding scale fee you are paying.


Cancellation Fees: Please contact us as soon as possible if you need to cancel.  Cancellations after 11 am on opening day of the retreat may prevent those on the wait list from attending.  

  •     If you cancel 4 or more weeks before a retreat begins, your deposit is refunded, less a $50 fee. 
  •     If you cancel less than 4 weeks before a retreat begins, your deposit is not refunded. 
  •     All cancellation fees are added to our scholarship fund.


Assumption of Risk and Release.

Please read carefully.

I assume all risk of damage or injury that may occur to me while practicing meditation at the True North Insight meditation retreat and while moving about the facility at which the retreat is held. In consideration of being accepted as a retreatant for this meditation retreat, I release and discharge Ture North Insight, and its agents, from all claims resulting from my participation in the meditation retreat.

I have read and understand this assumption of risk and release.
