Applications for CASCADIA LIVING WISDOM SCHOOL can be submitted anytime between August 1 and November 30 and admissions are awarded on a rolling basis. All applications must be received by email and will be processed within 30 days. Please be sure to review the website information carefully before applying as it is updated each year just prior to the August 1 opening of applications.
Interested participants must apply by completing the Application and paying the non-refundable $50 Application fee (see below for details). If able, open the Application (Word format), complete the form in a different font or colour, save a copy on your computer and send your completed application as an email attachment to Cascadia.Living.Wisdom.School@gmail.com. If you are unable to open the Word format, use the PDF format and complete and mail in the same way.
There are three types of fees:
Please note that this means that those registered for the Residential Program and attending the annual Fall retreat must pay all 3 fees. Those involved in the Non-Residential Program and participating only in the online portion of the program pay only the Application and Program fees.
We recognize that unforeseen circumstances may occur that cause participants to withdraw from planned attendance at a retreat. Since their intensive format makes it difficult to fill vacancies left by last-minute cancellations and since CASCADIA itself faces cancellation fees and non-recoverability of some prepayments, the cancellation policy for Retreat Fees is as follows:
Payments should be made by means of personal checks payable to Dr. David G. Benner in US dollars – although Canadians may pay in Canadian dollars by means of Interac e-Transfers. Checks, in either currency, should be mailed to:
Dr. David G. Benner
3 Stonebank Crescent, #12
Nepean, Ontario, CANADA
If mailing checks from outside of Canada please ensure that you use proper international postage. Please also be aware that international mail often takes 2 or more weeks to arrive in Canada so pay close attention to the date by which payment must be received and send your payments at least 3 weeks before this date.
