LOCATION: The Better Life Studios (formerly The Life Loft), 390 Dupont St. on the north side of Dupont between Bathurst and Spadina. Enter through the side door (glass door) up the stairs and then to the right. The building has a big sign for Creed’s Laundry. If you are coming by subway, 390 Dupont is about three blocks west of Dupont Subway Station (Dupont and Spadina). If you are driving, parking is very limited in the parking lot. There is street parking in the neighbourhood, metered parking on Dupont and there are two paid parking lots on Bridgman Ave. north of Dupont.
CLOTHING: Wear loose and comfortable clothing. There is a “no shoe” policy in The Better Life Studio. Please bring socks and/or slippers to keep your feet warm. Please bring layered clothing as the room temperature is fixed. Blankets are provided.
Please note: Due to respect for participants with allergies, we request that you not wear any fragrances such as perfume, after-shave, etc.
FEE: The weekly sessions, the 4 hour day retreat and the intake interview are covered by OHIP. There is a fee of $120.00 for materials, including a workbook, photocopying, MP3 of Heidi’s guided meditations, snacks and services not covered by OHIP.
CANCELLATION & WITHDRAWAL POLICIES: If you are late or leave the session early there is a fee of $10 for every 30 minutes absent; this starts after 7:15 pm (15 mins late). If you leave early say at 9:30 pm, a similar fee applies. If you miss a session there is an absence fee of $55.00. If you do not attend the weekend day retreat, the fee will be $80.00. These fees are in place to partially cover the payment lost from OHIP. If you decide to withdraw from the program you have up until and including the third session to do so. A portion of the $120.00 material and administration fee will be reimbursed to you. If you withdraw after the third week, we ask you to be responsible for the cost of the remaining sessions at a rate of $55/session.
WEEKEND DAY RETREAT: There will be a 4 hour mindfulness session on the weekend as part of the program. The date is to be confirmed. The location of the weekend day retreat will be in Toronto or the GTA area and will be easily accessible for all.
