Please note, a $500 deposit is required to hold your spot on a tour. You may pay through e-mail transfer or though PayPal. The remaining 50% may be paid by the same means one week prior to the retreat dates or on location, in cash. Peruvian ATM machines only give maximum of $500 per day, so you might want to bring some cash with you. There are no banks in our village.

Useful hints:
No part of the program is mandatory to participate in except the introductory talk and going home talk. Of course to reap the full benefit of your time at El Corazon we highly recommend that you try to stick to the proposed schedule and take advantage of the program we have prepared for you. But we all understand that sometimes one may need some time alone or would prefer to pursue a different activity than the one offered at that time. Of course, there will be plenty of time for you to have quiet moments, naps, swims or walks. Please do not hesitate to talk to Maria or to Lucas if at any point you feel uncomfortable. Given the nature of deep personal work that takes place during the retreat, certain personal uncomforts are likely to surface, as we progress through layers of our psyche that have been ignored, unbalanced or overexposed previously. Such conditions are natural and usually signify that deep personal transformation is on the way. Be kind and patient with yourself and please remember that you are loved, always.
