Frequently Asked Questions

Are the retreats in-person or online?

Please note that all retreats are currently planned as in-person residential retreats only. Should the retreats be restricted due to covid, we have alternative plans to be able to deliver them online.


In this instance, Souliology is not liable for any travel expenses booked in relation to the retreat like flights and transfers so we highly recommend you take out extra insurance to cover you in such cases should the retreat need to be delivered online.

For retreats that are open for registration, simply register your interest on the retreat leaders specific webpage. Once you register your interest, you will automatically be directed to a full registration form for completion. Once your complete the registration form we will forward it for approval to the retreat leader. Please note that completing a registration form is not a binding commitment by you to attend the retreat. Once the retreat leader accepts you application, we will advise you accordingly via email and we will provide you with account details to allow you transfer your non-refundable deposit. At this stage you have the opportunity to decline the offer. However, once you pay the non-refundable deposit you are committing to attend the retreat.

Thank you in advance for your patience. 

Our Covid 19 Policy:


At Souliology, while we are aware that Covid-19 is thankfully not as big a consideration as it was a few years agowe want to reassure you that your investment with Souliology is protected. 


Please feel confident that the following booking conditions are in place relating to COVID-19. 

In the event of the following due to COVID-19:

  • Full lockdown in one of our retreat destinations.

  • Requirements to quarantine on arrival at one of our retreat destinations.

  • Advice from local government against all but essential travel to one of our retreat destinations.

  • Local restrictions at the retreat venue in one of our retreat destinations preventing the retreat from taking place.

Souliology will move your retreat to a new date and you will have the following options:

  • To move your participation in the retreat to the new date allocated.

  • To hold your retreat payments as a credit to apply to the same retreat at a different date or any other retreat provided there is a vacancy and you meet the eligibility requirements.

Finally, in light of the current global circumstances, we highly recommend taking out travel insurance which includes trip cancellation insurance plus we recommend booking refundable flights to the retreat venue. While we are fully committed to hosting our retreats in-person, we want to acknowledge the global uncertainties, and we believe it’s wise to safeguard your financial investment (you may be able to avail of some cover through your credit card company; so please don’t forget to inquire).


Please note, in the event that you do manage to join us and we are mid-retreat, if any of the above scenarios take place during your stay, please understand that an insurance claim will need to be submitted from your side to claim for any financial loss incurred by you, as Souliology, the retreat leader or the retreat venue cannot be held responsible should Covid and/or a requirement to quarantine becomes an issue mid-retreat.

What Covid measures are in place?

  • Vaccination: We recommend participants and staff be fully immunized but it is not mandatory.

  • Testing: All participants and staff are required to take and show the results of a rapid test prior to the training if you are experiencing any high temperatures or have any Covid symptoms. You are also required to bring rapid tests to allow you test throughout the retreat period to ensure you remain Covid free during the retreat period.

  • If you test positive for Covid while on retreat with us, you will not be able to attend the retreat in person and you will be required to quarantine in your room until you are Covid free. We will require you to provide an up to date negative Covid test before you will be permitted to stop quarantining and re-join the retreat group in person. All set retreat meals will be delivered to your room while you are in quarantine. You may be able to attend the retreat remotely from your room during quarantine, therefore, we advise you to bring a device with you to the retreat venue so you can join remotely. Should you test positive for Covid, it will be your responsibility to claim for any financial loss on your personal or company insurance.

  • Masking: It is possible that masking may be required indoors except when eating. This will be at the organisers discretion and subject to Public Health requirements at the time. If you are feeling unwell, even if you don't test positive for Covid, we will respectfully ask you to mask throughout the retreat to help minimise the spread of illness to other retreat participants.

  • You will need to stay up to date on border testing and quarantine requirements as well as those of your particular airline. Travel insurance is a necessity (may be available through your credit card company; inquire into details such as whether it covers the cost of quarantine).

  • COVID Entry requirements for our retreat destinations: COVID entry restrictions to all our retreat destinations have been generally relaxed since 2022. However, before travelling you should check the website for each country's Department of Health to access if any further restrictions have been put in place before you travel. 

  • All Domestic and International Travelers: You are responsible for assessing your own risks with regards to health, travel and financial loss. You attend all of our events at your own risk and neither the retreat site, the retreat leaders or Souliology, as the retreat organisers, are responsible for any financial loss you may incur for any reason whatsoever while travelling to and from the retreat venue or while attending any of our retreats/events.  


What if the Retreat Leader gets Covid or cannot attend for other reasons?

  • Leadership: In the very unlikely event that the retreat leader becomes unexpectedly unable to attend the retreat they will either lead us remotely or appoint a Lead Assistant Trainer who will deliver the retreat in person. You will not be entitled to any financial reimbursement or any retreat credit should this happen.

  • ​In the extremely unlikely event that the retreat leader cannot participate at all during the scheduled retreat, the Lead Assistant Trainer will lead the retreat and the retreat leader will provide additional post-training live Q&A time via Zoom. You will not be entitled to any financial reimbursement or retreat credit should this happen.
