When We Gather FAQ

When We Gather FAQ

June 23 – 24, 2018

What’s included?

Your registration includes either 1-night 2-day (depending on the package you choose) stay at the cozy and rustic Akasha retreat center in Crozet, Virginia. Plus, all meals, snacks (but feel free to bring your own), workshops, activities, and supplies.

Registration does not include transportation to and from the retreat center or other travel.

What are the rooms like?

Akasha’s accommodations are fairly modest but comfortable. You’ll have your own twin bed (in a shared room, one roommate) and there are dorm-style bathrooms for everyone to share. If you need, there is at least one private bathroom in the next building.

Can I choose my roommate?

Yes! If you have a friend that is attending and has paid their registration fee, let us know and we’ll pair you together. Otherwise, we’ll do our best to encourage new friendships by pairing like-minded attendees.

What if I’m not good at…?

…Speaking in crowds, yoga, meditation, writing, art, being calm in nature, focusing myself, cooking, etc… No worries! You’ll definitely be positively encouraged to participate but no one is going to make you feel bad if you don’t. Plus, we are totally judgment-free and none of the attendees or workshop leaders will critique the quality of what you create. If you are inclined to join us, please join us—everything else will fall into place.

Will I be able to get some alone time?

Hello, fellow introvert! One of the sweet things about this retreat is that there’s no pressure to be a part of each and every group activity. There are a few sweet spots to grab some solo time and we’ll point them out when you arrive.

How do I get there?

When you register, we’ll send you step-by-step directions to the retreat center, which is fairly close to Charlottesville, Virginia. We can’t help you make flight or long distance arrangements.

Is this a Women’s Retreat?

Mainly due to the style of accommodations, yes. We welcome trans women and non-binary folks to this retreat.

What’s the cancellation policy?

We have less than a dozen spots for attendees, so we take your commitment to coming to the WWG Retreat seriously

Balance is due in full on June 20th, 2018. 

Through May 31, 2018, if you must cancel, we will refund any amount paid minus your $175 non-refundable deposit.

After May 31, 2018, there are no refunds. If a conflict arises, you may transfer your spot to another person, sending a friend or family member to the retreat in your place (this person must be cleared with us first).

After June 15, 2018, no refunds or transfers.
