Openhand Bookings and Cancellations Policy
Booking terms and conditions
What happens if you need to cancel an event with Openhand?
We ask you to understand and empathise with how Openhand runs as a not for profit organisation; how we shape events; and seek to make our events accessible to all people regardless of background and financial circumstances. If you are familiar with us, you may realise our work currently attracts intimate group numbers as relatively few are delving into the advanced nature of our philosophies and enquiries. We do not monetise the website through advertising, so our modest revenues are gained from retreat bookings. In practical terms this means when you pay for an event, the funds go not just to that event but also meet all the Openhand day to day running costs and enabling someone financially constrained to attend. This means that it’s not straightforwards to reallocate monies in the event of cancellation due to them already being committed.
Balancing Payments due 30 days before an event
Terrestrial Events Going Online in the Event of Travel RestrictionsWhere a terrestrial event cannot go ahead as scheduled due to imposed travel restrictions (virus measures etc), in that the organisers are not allowed to travel to the venue or other local participants, then we reserve the right to transfer the event online. The cost of accommodation and food will be subtracted from the originally listed price.
