Is it okay to leave a workshop if it isn’t suitable?
Yes. Please do so quietly. You can enter another workshop if the door is open. Many people will leave to have a session in the Healing Oasis. If a Workshop Leader did not keep on topic as per the announcement, please fill in the feed back form or let Angéle, Sunnaira or Marion know.

Can I get a refund if I missed my Healing Oasis appointment?
Not if you did not show… If the Healer doesn’t show then we give refunds.

Why can’t I book an hour with a practitioner who has scheduled only half-hours?
Some prefer to do Intro Sessions but you can ask.

What if I don’t like the treatment or reading?
Talk to the person at the registration desk and/or mention it to Sunnaira, Angéle or Marion.
