Retreat Agreement

In each SPARK Retreat, Jessica Chilton and all co-facilitators agree to do their personal best to create a respectful, loving space in which participants can experience whatever is in their highest good. In turn, we ask that each participant takes full and complete personal responsibility for their own experience at the retreat and does their personal best to co-create a respectful, loving environment for all.

To cover the legal business aspects of running a retreat, we ask that all participants release Jessica Chilton, SPARK Creative Wellness Studio, LLC, and all co-facilitators, from any and all liability as each participant takes full responsibility for their own experience.
