General information for your participation in the five-day event in the Isha Judd Center Uruguay
Congratulations on giving yourself this special gift of love!
We want to share with you that as a result of the special challenges brought about by the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) pandemic, we have taken advantage of this time to prepare ourselves and develop hygiene and prevention protocols that will keep you feeling safe during your stay in our Center.
We will continue to monitor political and governmental changes in order to keep improving the existing policy.
We are confident in our ability to offer you a safe refuge for your heart.
Important to know:
2. It is MANDATORY that you have full medical insurance coverage for the entire duration of the program and that this policy covers COVID 19. When you arrive in the center, you will need to bring a paper copy of the policy you have purchased so that we can help you at any point if required.
3. Please be advised that all of the available rooms for this event are shared with other people.
4. To get the most out of your unifying (the intensive practice of the system), we recommend that you bring a pillow or cushion for your head, a top and bottom sheet for a mattress, and a blanket to cover yourself. As well, you should bring a yoga mat, athletic shoes for use in the outdoor spaces of the Center as well as during exercise, and mosquito repellant. For access to the pool and pool deck, make sure you bring a bathing suit and sun protection. (Note: Use of the pool and its surrounding space is conditional upon local health regulations, which are subject to change).
5. The Isha Judd Center is a house of consciousness where large-scale activities take place, and for this reason, we have to carefully observe set standards of hygiene and safety; as a result, we reserve the right to refuse admission. For this reason, we do not allow people to enter the Center or stay there who are suffering from infectious diseases such as: lice, scabies, tuberculosis, Hepatitis A, the mups, chicken pox, or measles. Please take the necessary precautions to avoid entering the center if you have any of the previously mentioned conditions.
Important: Those who are sick with COVID-19 or who present cold or flu symptoms, such as cough, fever, sore throat, muscle soreness or any other possible COVID-19 symptoms, will not be permitted to start their program.
If during your stay in the Center you develop any symptoms that may be indicative of COVID-19 infection, the Isha Judd Center will help you coordinate medical assistance in accordance with your medical insurance or Social Security to evaluate the steps to follow.
Important: Carefully read the following protocol, which can be found in the appendix of the terms and conditions at the end of this form.
6. If you are following any psychiatric or psychological treatment, you must present written authorization from your doctor or therapist to be able to participate in the event.
7. If you are taking any medications, it is important that you bring the prescription and medical authorization with you.
8. The consumption of alcoholic beverages or narcotics is strictly forbidden in the Center and for the duration of the program; as such, you cannot enter the Center while under the effects of such substances. A failure to comply with this requirement will result in your immediate suspension and termination from the program with no possibility of a transfer or return of registration fees. Here we ask for your absolute responsibility because you are coming to take part in a process of total inner transformation. In the case of suspected substance use, a urine test will be used to rule out any doubt. Smoking cigarettes is forbidden in the inner spaces of the Center (and restricted to designated areas). The Center equally reserves the right to terminate program involvement for participants violating the basic norms of cohabitation, including but not limited to physical or verbal violence.
The failure to comply with or falsification of information in regards to points 2, 5, 6, 7 and/or 8 will automatically nullify the contract and/or the right to continue participating in the event; it could result in immediate removal from the Center without the Center being held financially responsible.
9. In order to help with the detoxification of your body and to support your digestion and deepen your practice, we offer a light diet during the retreat, including a breakfast of seasonal fruits and oats and a lunch of vegetables and salads. This diet is designed to help you get the most out of your process of introspection, but in the event that you wish to incorporate additional items, certain healthy foods are permitted, for example raisins, almonds, pecans, cashews or peanuts. Dinner includes vegetarian meals of vegetables, cereals, pastas and grains. We strongly recommend that you follow our diet and avoid consuming candy, soda or canned goods. If there are health reasons why you can’t follow this diet, you will need to present a doctor’s note describing your specific food recommendations and your diagnosis. Special food adjustments will only be provided in the case of medical conditions and will still respect the foods offered in the Center. If you require a food that isn’t offered in the Center, you will need to purchase the food yourself and add it to your food. The Center also offers special services at an additional cost, such as detox juices, chia pudding, eggs and protein shakes.
IMPORTANT: Under no circumstances are you permitted to keep food in your room
IMPORTANT: Washing clothing in the bathroom in your room is not permitted.
IMPORTANT: we will be going out to do activities in nature and to enjoy the beautiful beach that we have in front of us. We will go out in groups to take care of each other and at scheduled times for that, as well as physical activity. If you like, you can bring a bathing suit, sunscreen and beach items, because it is summer time in Uruguay.
