      Is it okay to leave a workshop if it isn’t suitable?
      Yes, by all means leave if you are not happy. People will be leaving workshops to attend appointments in the healing oasis throughout your workshop so don’t be embarrassed at all. We would rather you find yourself in a workshop where you are happy.

      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?
      It will show up on the sign up sheet if that practitioner will allow half hour or full hour appointments. Some are not set up for a longer time frame.
      However if it shows half hour appointments, you can book two in a row if you like.

      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.
