We request full payment of tuition at the time of registration. However, we need to receive a minimum deposit of $500 to reserve your seat.

Payments after the initial registration can be made online through PayPal or payments via check can be mailed to Roxy Manning (see section on how to register below). If a different timing for the payments is needed, please contact Roxy.

If you cancel on or before July 9, 2017, your fees will be refunded minus a $100 administrative fee. If you cancel after July 9, 2017, your fees will be refunded (minus the $100 administrative fee) only if we can fill your place in the training with another participant. If we are unable to do so, your fees, minus the portion of your fee paid to the facility and a $200 administrative fee, will be refunded.

Financial Assistance

It is our greatest desire that all persons who want to come to The West Coast Intensive be able to do so. As part of our commitment to ensuring class diversity, we do not want access to funds to be a barrier for attendance. If you would like to attend this retreat and do not have funds to pay the requested contributions, please contact us. While it is unlikely we would be able to offer room and board assistance, we may have funds available for partial tuition scholarships depending on the level of contributions we receive from others. We would like to be in dialogue with each person interested in attending to see if together, we can identify a combination of financial assistance, fundraising, and payment plans that would enable you to attend.

We will be using contributions greater than the minimum to make this event as inclusive as possible.
