Participants, by signing this agreement, agree that the Retreat Organizers (James Bailey and Sevanti Adventures), Sevanti Institute, Reliable Vacation Ltd, guest teachers, and AyurSoma Ayurveda Royal Retreat and their respective representatives, will not be held liable for any injury, damage, loss, delay or irregularity that may be occasioned for any reason, including, but not limited to any defect in a vehicle, the acts or default of any company or person engaged in conveying a participant, acts of God, terrorism, acts of war, or detention; delays or expenses arising from quarantine, strikes, thefts, pilferage, force of nature, civil disturbance, government restrictions or regulations, accidents by aircraft, boat, rowboat, train, bus, motor vehicle of kind, auto rickshaw or bicycle rickshaw, or in any restaurant, place of visit or accommodation; failure of any means of transportation to arrive or depart as scheduled or changes to transit; missed airline or other transportation connections; or additional expenses resulting from changes in exchange rates, tariffs, or itinerary.
Participants agree to assume all risks associated with the Retreat and agree that no liability will attach to the Retreat Organizer and Retreat Center, their employees or agents, or to any member of the trip in respect of death, personal injury, illness or delay of the passenger, or for any loss of or damage to the property (including luggage) of the participant during the course of the Retreat, howsoever caused. By signing this Retreat Participation Agreement, the participant releases the Retreat Organizer as well as the Retreat Center and their representatives from any such responsibility or liability, except as hereinabove set forth. The liability of common carriers is generally limited and, therefore, it is suggested that participants purchase their own cancellation, property damage (including luggage), and accident insurance. For the benefit of everyone on your trip, the Retreat Organizer reserves the right to accept or reject any trip participant at any time without liability, and in the event it determines, in its sole and exclusive discretion, that a participant is disruptive to the harmony of the Retreat, it may without any obligation to pay a refund or any other amount whatsoever, expel such participant from the Retreat. The Retreat Organizer will have no responsibility or liability for any participant who leaves the Retreat prior to its conclusion or for any activity undertaken by any participant that is not included in the Retreat Itinerary.
Participants (guests and assistants) agree that they will not create a competing group India tour business that copies the business plan and itinerary, or similar itinerary, of the Sevanti Adventures Journey to India Retreat. Participants may return to locations on the itinerary as not-for-profit individual tourists on vacation, but they may not create their own for-profit group tour business and recreate the same or similar itinerary. Such activity will be treated as a violation of this agreement, and a violation of Sevanti Adventures’ intellectual property and proprietary tour itinerary rights. It’s also bad karma.
