Spring 2020 WoW FAQs

Can I attend during the daytime only, or get my own room somewhere else?
Yes. The retreat tuition does not include accommodations. You’re free to arrange a discounted room at Semiahmoo Resort (see the accommodations page for the discount code) or stay elsewhere.

How will those with special dietary requirements be accommodated?
As at most Northwest resorts, the staff at Semiahmoo routinely handle special dietary needs, and menus accommodate those. Retreat attendees will have the option of selecting meals that include meat, vegetarian, vegan, or gluten-free provisions. (Note, however, that the facility in which these will be prepared is not fully gluten-free.)

Can I get a refund?
Refunds will be given (minus a $40 processing fee to cover PayPal’s charges to us) to those who must cancel their registration on or before March 20, 2020. No refunds are available for cancellations after March 20.
