I’m Vegan/Gluten Free/Paleo/Have allergies, can you accommodate my dietary needs?
Yes! The chefs can accommodate just about any dietary preferences and/or needs, which you will inform us of in your intake forms. Please reach out to us (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have absolutely any concerns.
I want to come, but I’m nervous and feeling unsure… What should I do?
You’re not alone. Any trip, retreat or sacred experience is going to take you a little outside of your comfort zone and expand you beyond normal routines--yes, that can be scary or intimidating!
Most of our retreaters feel at least some amount of nervousness and excitement when considering joining us for Revival. Trust yourself and your intuition, you’ll know if this is for you, and if so you will be supported in moving through any fear or anxiety you might be feeling.
Need more clarity before you enroll? Email us (email@example.com) with your thoughts and feelings, and we’ll schedule a 20 min Q&A call to walk through every single concern and question. From there you can decide if it’s for you.
Please note: We cannot extend early-bird pricing if you procrastinate and we can not guarantee rooms if they all book.
I’m a guy, can I come? Or is this only for women?
Yes, men are welcome for this one, too! We love men, and all humans of any race, gender or sexual orientation. We also welcome all couples, BFFs and friend groups.

What happens after I fill out the registration form and pay the deposit?
If you haven’t already hopped on a call with us, once you fill out your registration and pay your deposit we’ll send you a link to book a call with us so we can answer any questions and ensure the retreat is a great fit for you! (If for any reason it’s not, you’ll get a full refund on that deposit.)
On this call we’ll also confirm your room selection, if you want to pay in full or do our payment plan and go over some other fun details!
From there we’ll be emailing out next steps to help you book you flight, pack and prep and some other fun things along the way to get in the spirit of REVIVAL.
What time does the retreat start and end, so I know when I’m booking my flights?
The retreat begins Sunday, April 26th at 4pm and ends Friday, May 1st at 11am PST.
We recommend arriving at the resort (address to be sent to you after registration) on Sunday, April 26th between 2-4pm at the resort in Desert Hot Springs, CA. Once your room is ready your bags will be dropped there and in the meantime you’re invited to sit back and relax with us in paradise or throw on a robe and start soaking!
Our Opening Ceremony is set to begin around 5:30pm and sunset welcome dinner begins at 7pm. We highly recommend arriving early so you can join us for these activities and get introduced to the group! (If you are driving or flying in early, you’re more than welcome to enjoy the facilities, just note your room won't be ready until 2-4pm.)
We will have our final breakfast together on Friday, May 1st at 9am for final blessings and hugs. Check out is at 11am PST. If you’re flying out of Palm Springs, we recommend booking your flight after 12pm or later, if possible. If you’re flying out of LAX, please be sure to leave ample time to get there in case of traffic. If you’re driving enjoy the flexibility of departing as you wish!
All these details will be sent out to you after registration as well!
I’ve never done a retreat before and/or have only dabbled in yoga. Is that ok? Will I be the only one who is a newbie?
You’ll be in great company. For some this will be their first retreat, too! For others they’ll be coming back for a 5th time.
Even if you’ve only dabbled in yoga or meditation OR are just starting a spiritual or healing journey REVIVAL lovingly embraces you where you’re at. You’ll have options and freedom to dive deep or dip your toe in, whatever you prefer.
REVIVAL is designed to create new connections and/or deepen bonds. Even if you come solo without knowing anyone, you’ll find companionship in the group. There’s also plenty of time/space to be alone if you crave/need introverted time to recharge.
As long as you are open to receiving nourishment, sharing positive energy and have a big heart you'll fit right in!
What’s the refund/cancellation policy?
Your $600 deposit secures your room and is fully refundable for up 7 days after you make the payment. If for any reason we do not see the retreat as a fit, you will be refunded within 48 hours in full. After the 7 day window, your deposit is non-refundable.
There are no refunds on cancellations after March 28, 2020 (30 days before the retreat begins). If you cancel before March 28, 2020 you will be reimbursed your fees minus your deposit and a $97 processing fee. Refunds will be issued within 48 hours of cancellation.
If you cancel after March 28, 2020 you are responsible for your FULL payment. No refunds will be issued, but your deposit and retreat fees are fully transferable to another person (that is approved). If you are unable to fill the spot, you are liable for all remaining payments. Due to limited rooms and space, late cancellations mean someone else did not get that spot.
We understand emergencies happen and will do our best to work with you on a case by case basis if something comes up and you need to late cancel.
There are no refunds for an unused portion of the retreat (ex: if you leave early)
