Limiting enrollment provides the best retreat experience, however cancellations or no-shows have a serious impact as food, beverages and supplies are purchased in advance. In addition, we have fixed costs for operating costs incluing building utilities, maintenance, catering and cleaning staff.  

•  Registration requires a deposit of 50% of the class fee to reserve a space in the retreat.

• Full payment of the retreat fee is due 14 days prior to the beginning of the retreat; this payment is non-refundable.

• Any cancellations must be made in writing by email or mail (no phone calls please). A cancellation fee of $50.00 will be charged.

Cancellations received more than 45 days prior to the start of the event will receive a refund of the deposit less the $50.00 fee.

Cancellations received 44 days or less prior to the start of the retreat receive no refund of deposit.


•   Galeria Mariposa may have a waiting list for an event and will attempt to replace a cancellation. Retreat registration is also transferable to another person by prior arrangement with Galeria Mariposa. If a waiting list person takes the space and pays the fees, or you arrange a replacement for the retreat, a refund will be issued of payments less the cancelation fee.    


• Transfers: You may transfer your enrollment up to 22 days in advance of the retreat to another scheduled within the same year, presuming space is available. A non-refundable $25 transfer fee will be charged for each transfer.

 • Galeria Mariposa reserves the right to cancel any retreat due to insufficient enrollment and will notify students of any cancellation at least 14 days prior to the start of the workshop. If Galeria Mariposa cancels a retreat, the retreatants will receive a full refund or may transfer their registration to the next retreat.

• Galeria Mariposa cannot be responsible for airline tickets or other travel costs in the event of a cancellation
