Our Covid -19 Care Protocols
We strongly resonate with Blue Spirit’s values and the protocols that reflect them. You can see them listed on their website. We all acknowledge that appropriate covid-related responses will vary one way or another by the time we are gathering for our Retreat, and we will be adjusting our protocols accordingly. We will stay in touch with you to let you know what to expect. Please feel free to bring your questions or concerns to us so that we may respond to you with the fullest respect and consideration.
We know that vaccine availability is not under our personal control, and our prayer is that availability will continue to grow so that our entire population will be vaccinated by November 2021. We are moving into a time, into a consciousness, of prioritizing the collective well-being. If Covid-19 has taught us anything, it is that we are all truly interconnected. What one does, affects everyone. In that spirit, we ask that all participants get their vaccines prior to the Retreat. Our intention is that we will travel responsibly; that our Retreat will be of benefit to each of us as individuals and also to the people whose country we will be visiting.
Our cancellation policy reflects our commitment to your safety, to the safety of everyone in our sphere while we travel, and everyone near us while we enjoy beautiful Costa Rica. Let’s all visualize that we’ll keep moving in the direction of greater wellness! And if we have to shift, we will, in order to keep everyone safe and to be conscious, ethical travelers.
Please read Blue Spirit’s Protocols, and you’ll know what our recommendations are for your preparation. A specific list of what to bring will come to you a month prior to our shared journey. We are so touched and honored that you are co-creating this experience with us by stepping in! With joy, love and prayers for your well-being, Alex and Paula
