Frequently asked questions

What do I need to get there and back?

The amount of detail that differs from one political jurisdiction to another is immense. You are and will be responsible for all travel-related obligations that are upon you based on your needs. This includes knowing what is required of you for tests and immunisations for departing from where you are departing as well as your onward travel after the event. 

Tests for those going to Canada and the USA after the event are available at the airport (PVR). We will provide those details upon registration.

What if something happens and I can’t get to the location?

There will be no refund for those who cannot come due to lack of diligence regarding what they need to travel. Changes happen quickly in this era and so where a new government policy (after registration) has significantly impaired your ability to attend once registered will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis. 

Will vaccination or a negative test be required to attend the Gathering?

No. Everyone who intends on attending will be required to agree to sharing the risk of being exposed to COVID-19. This means that there will be no safeguard around the exposure to the virus apart from basic sanitary measures, such as distancing and sterilising.

What if I decide not to attend after I registered (regardless of the reason)?

If you cancel before November 15th, I will hold 50% of your payment.

If you cancel after November 15th, I will hold 100% of your deposit.

Please note that as of October 21st, there is no COVID-19-related requirement for entry into Mexico for any traveller into the country by air, citizen or not. This does not mean that there are no related requirements for your departure from or re-entry to your country of origin.

LOCATION

Is this indoors or outdoors?

The property hosts a collection of individual open-air bungalows. All bungalows as well as the kitchen are open-air structures. This includes where you will sleep as well as where you will perform sessions.

Will I have my own place to stay and sleep?

No. Practitioners will be in a bungalow with minimum one other. You will have your own bed. 

How do I get there?

It is recommended to fly to PVR on December 8th and take advantage of acclimatizing a night in a hotel we have arranged. On the 9th, there will be a shuttle provided from the hotel directly to the location (about 2 hour drive).

What if I am already in Mexico?

You can either be at the above mentioned hotel for the pickup time to catch the shuttle, or arrange to arrive on your own (taxi is possible). In case of the latter, please contact Mar (contact info given in the group Wire thread upon registration).

THE GATHERING

Do I bring my own medicine?

No. You bring your delivery device only. All you will need for your sessions will be provided for you. We will discuss which medicine you need on our live call.

How will my dietary restrictions/preferences be met?

The caterer will be providing a foundational vegan menu. Once registration is complete we can then discuss other arrangements.

Who are the clients?

The ‘clients’ are people, citizens of Mexico or not, who live in the nearby community. They have been sourced via our organizer on the ground. You will be paired with the clients (based on many considerations) before November 15th. Each client presented to you

-has agreed to the time commitments 

-has paid a deposit for their session which is reimbursed ONLY after the event

-has agreed to the shared risk of exposure to COVID-19

Can I invite my partner to participate as a client?

No. Romantic partners of practitioners will not be participating in any way in the event. Priority will be given to (English-speaking) members of the local community.

What is the schedule?

We will discuss the Gathering’s flow in the practitioner group call November 3rd, 2PM ET (North America).

What is the intake/admission procedure for the clients?

That depends on you! This event is an opportunity for you to develop and/or refine all the stages of your offering. As lead for two clients, you will take each of them through your own intake process. As co-lead for two clients, you will shadow the intake process of your co-practitioner. There will be a period in which you are required to commit the necessary time:  November 15th to 28th
