There is a $100 transfer fee for this service. Cancellations 14 days or less before the beginning date of the workshop are non-refundable. If you have to cancel or transfer your workshop, please contact our Intake Department as soon as possible — we often have a waiting list of people who want to attend.

Lodging Policy


There will be no room changes once checked in. You will stay with the person you are originally paired with for the duration of your stay. With this in mind, individuals are encouraged to bring items to assist with their own comfort such as earplugs, music, sleep masks, etc. Individuals will not be transferred to another room for reasons such as a snoring roommate.

Electronic Devices

Rooms will be equipped with an alarm clock but no TV or other electronics. However, individuals are allowed to bring their own devices to the room for their personal use – Wi-Fi is provided in sleeping rooms. Electronic devices, including phones, computers, e-readers and tablets can be brought into and used in-room. Individuals must obtain their roommate’s OK to use devices in-room. Courtesy should be given, as the room is a shared space. (For example: use headphones to listen to music.)
At no time are these devices to be utilized outside of their room or out on the Rio Retreat campus.
