Dietary Considerations

La Casa de Maria offers a nutritious menu that utilizes the freshest, natural and local ingredients - some from their own gardens. Vegetarian, vegan or gluten-free options may be made available for you, if you request it and communicate it to us at least 4 weeks (no later than October 10, 2016) prior to your arrival on November 6, 2016.

You will be asked to declare any special dietary considerations and food allergies or sensitivities, after registration, in the Registration Interview. La Casa de Maria will do their best to provide a selection of foods to appeal to all preferences, although we cannot guarantee that all your selections will be available. For dietary considerations, that may be out of the ordinary, email Diane Cardamone at

Cancellation and Refund Policy

We know life happens. Training is a commitment we take seriously, and we trust that you take it seriously as well. It takes energy to set up and organize the details pertinent to a training event on our part. At the same time, it takes energy to organize and plan the details of your life to go through and complete your training. So, in honor of the energy that is required on both sides, we ask that you treat this cancellation policy as a guide for communicating with us as soon as possible about any changes in your decision to pursue training at this time

Here are the relevant points to keep in mind so that you can let us know about your decisions in a timely way. We sincerely appreciate your willingness and cooperation in these matters. All cancellations must be made in writing to email

  2. Due to required facility deposits and administration costs, for cancellations made [the time period within the 12 and 8 weeks before the start of the program -- August 16, 2016 and September 12, 2016] the refund is the registration fee less a $500 processing fee, (and less the portion of the finance fee if applicable collected to date of cancellation for Payment Plan Enrollees).
