Although participants of workshops find healing in the programs and practices of workshops, the Body Electric School does not provide mental, physical, medical, or emotional treatment, therapy or services, nor are participants seeking such professional support encouraged to participate in programming. As such, the Body Electric School always encourages individuals who are struggling with clinical issues to seek assistance from a licensed medical or mental health provider.
The Body Electric School is responsible for the personal safety of all participants of its programs. To protect all participants, Body Electric School faculty, coordinators, and administrators retain the right at all times to refuse enrollment of anyone. If a person has registered for a workshop and a determination is made that the individual cannot participate, all registration fees will be refunded, and the registration will be notified. If a determination is made that an individual cannot participate in a workshop once the program begins, the participant will be dismissed, all registration fees will be refunded, and the participant will be notified.
The minimum age for participation in The Body Electric School workshops and intensive programs is 18 years of age on the day of registration for a program.
Many people find Body Electric programs to be an experience that honors them in profound and meaningful ways. We create containers that are respectful and inclusive so participants can feel safe to explore ways to be more at home in their erotic bodies. We begin each program by establishing ground rules for common agreement, which helps insure the best possible outcomes for every participant. It is important, therefore, that participants show up on time. Those who are late may not be allowed to participate in the workshop once the container has been formed. This decision is at the discretion of the faculty.
In today’s world, there are sometimes health risks with public exposure. We ask persons who have any skin disease or other easily communicable disease to postpone their attendance. The Body Electric School cannot be held liable for any illnesses incurred during a workshop.
Due to the physical exertion and potential increases in intraocular pressure during some of the workshop exercises, should one have a history of glaucoma or retinal disease, it is imperative to be cleared by a physician. The workshop also requires participants to engage in somatic-based practices, such as breath work, movement, and other activities that require individuals to be able to have the physical ability to engage in moderate physical movement and activity. If a potential registrant anticipates experiencing limitations in movement, breathing, and other practices, they are encouraged to consult with the local coordinator prior to registering for a program.
Funds for all workshops, unless noted, are in US dollars. Payments can be cash, check or credit cards American Express, Discover, MasterCard or VISA.
In most instances, fees for programs held outside of the United States are paid directly to the local coordinator. Please contact the coordinator for more details.
Scholarships are also available via online application. Visit the Scholarships page on our web site for more information.

We understand that situations may change once you register for a workshop. Please carefully read our refund policy so we can clarify in advance any questions as there are no exceptions to the policy.
Cancellations prior to two (2) weeks in advance will receive a full refund minus a $75 processing fee. Alternatively, paid fees can be credited to a future workshop within one year. If you transfer to another workshop within the year and cancel, do not attend, or leave early there is no further refund, credit nor transfer. The exception will be where a minimum number of participants are required by the venue. If this is not negotiable, Body Electric will refund up to the point of financial liability to the venue.
Cancellations less than two (2) weeks in advance will receive no refund. However, credit transfers may be made at the discretion of The Body Electric School management for extenuating circumstances and are good for one year.
Should an individual leave a workshop or does not attend, there will be no refund. Credit transfers may be made at the discretion of The Body Electric School management for extenuating circumstances.
Should The Body Electric School cancel a workshop, any payments made will be refunded in full or credited to another workshop at the discretion of the registrant.
For any situation out of our control such as weather, retreat center closings or disasters, there will be no refund but a tuition credit will be held for one year to apply to another Body Electric workshop. After one year there will be no further credit or transfer.
The Body Electric School is not responsible for any travel costs such as transportation and non-workshop lodging that may result from cancellations. You may wish to consider travel insurance. If you are traveling to a Body Electric School workshop or intensive program and need to purchase a non-refundable ticket, please bear this in mind and reach out to the coordinator should you want to check the status.
Though rare, we occasionally decide to cancel a workshop due to low registration. We make this determination two weeks prior to the workshop. Therefore, please register as soon as you are committed to attending so we can confirm that the workshop will run.
In this age of assorted body jewelry, it is incumbent upon the individual to protect themselves and the equipment used in Body Electric workshops (specifically massage tables usually borrowed for our workshops). Please take care and help us to protect our equipment by removing your body jewelry prior to the workshop. If it is not removable, it is up to the individual to protect the equipment. Any damage to equipment will be the responsibility of the individual to repair or replace.
