Payment for courses are made up front at the time of booking.
If you elect to pay via a payment plan, you will be responsible for the full fees, regardless if you attend all or part of the course.
Re-scheduling or cancellations must be made with 48 hours of the booking. If you voluntarily decide to withdraw from or cancel the Services following participation or once the Services have commenced, we reserve the right to count the booking as fulfilled, and there will be no refunds issued.
A non-refundable deposit is required to secure a booking, with full payment due no less than six weeks prior to the date of the Retreat. We do not offer refunds for change of mind or circumstance, once payment has been made in full, unless we are able to fill the placement on the retreat.
Whilst BMC makes every effort to avoid cancellation of any scheduled programs, including classes and retreats, BMC, at its sole discretion, may cancel or reschedule your appointment at any time and for any reason prior to the scheduled time.
We note that our Services (including, but not limited to, the information provided through this Website) come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law. We may offer refunds or compensation, where options to resupply or re-schedule the Services have been exhausted or in circumstances where there has been a major failure, where applicable, where the Services fail to be of acceptable quality, and in exceptional cases, such as injury, illness, death or force majeure.
