Booking information for day retreats

Due to Covid-19 all our day retreats are currently taking place online via Zoom. Please register for our online retreats on our Eventbrite page.

Our online retreats are free of charge, however, we invite you to support our teachers by offering Dana. We also invite you to make a small donation to help cover our operating costs. Suggested donation of £1-£5.

Booking In Person Retreats

NOTE: Booking in advance is essential, as our retreats frequently become fully booked.

Book online at Eventbrite.

What the Booking Fee Covers

The £12.50 booking fee (and £5 concessionary fee) covers general running costs of the retreat programme: printing the programme, hall hire, teas, and teachers’ travelling and accommodation expenses. There is a small additional charge made by Eventbrite of £1.12 per ticket, making the total cost of the ticket £13.62. There is no additional charge for concessionary tickets.

Concessions

We ask that you pay the full rate, if you are reasonably able to, as this supports the continuation of our retreats. We also offer tickets at £5 for people who think a concessionary rate might apply to them, for example, if you are unemployed, a full-time student, on a low income, or are otherwise finding it difficult to meet the full cost. If you are unable to afford our concessionary rate please contact us: oxfordinsightmeditation@gmail.com

If for any reason you cannot afford the booking fee please contact us: oxfordinsightmeditation@gmail.com as we would like to ensure that these days are accessible to everyone.

Our teachers receive no payment from the booking fee; instead you will be invited to offer a donation to the teacher on the day by way of the ancient tradition of Dana

Cancellations

Our retreats are often fully booked and have a waiting list. It is therefore essential that you let us know as soon as possible if you have to cancel your place on a retreat – otherwise, someone else may be turned away unnecessarily. Please contact us: oxfordinsightmeditation@gmail.com to notify us of a cancellation. Please see below on how to get a refund and how to request a place on an alternative retreat.

Refunds and requesting a place on an alternative retreat

We offer refunds, or the opportunity to book an alternative retreat, up to 48 hours prior to the retreat (10am on the Thursday before the retreat).

How to request a refund

For information on how to request a refund please click the Eventbrite request a refund support article here.

How to request a place on an alternative retreat

If you are no longer able to attend a particular retreat that you have booked, and want to switch to an alternative retreat, please email oxfordinsightmeditation@gmail.com to let us know which retreat you wish to cancel and which retreat you would like to attend instead.
