TVOP Retreat Policies & Guidelines

Inclusivity -  Some of us have met before, some of us will be meeting everyone for the first time.  As a group, we come from a variety of backgrounds and belief systems. Please be conscious about using inclusive language and not making assumptions.  Please avoid all oppressive and shaming language towards yourself and others. No pressure or harassment of any kind. 

Phones - Part of what is so special about this retreat is the fact that we are away from the normal distractions and activities of daily life.  To preserve this, we ask that you please not use your phones on the Forest Bathing Walks, and at other times to only use as a camera.  If you do need to use your phone, please use in your room or away from the group.  Please ask fellow participants for consent when taking pictures and posting. 

Substances - There is a strict no alcohol/drug policy on TVOP trips. Smoking of any kind must be done away from the house and the group.

Supportive Community - Let's support each other.  Some people may be here to heal or restore themselves.  Please respect people's space.  Let us know how we can support you. 

Forms

Please print the TVOP Health Form and bring it with you to the trip. You do not need to fill this form out if you have already done so, only if you have updated heatlh/medical information. The waiver can be signed at the retreat, posted here for you to read through.
