Sakala Community Guidelines

We have established Community Guidelines that set expectations for Sakala Community Facilitators, Guides, Teachers, and Healers. We welcome and appreciate any ideas, suggestions, or feedback you voluntarily provide to help us improve our Guidelines.


I. Cancellation:

Cancellations made seven days or more before the reserved date will receive a 100% refund. Cancellations made within 3-7 days will receive a 50% refund. Cancellations made within 72 hours or later will not receive a refund.


II. Classes, Events & Private Healing Rooms:

  • A booking does not provide you with a lease, access, or use of the space beyond the specified time and description. 

  • During your booking, you are responsible for the following:

    • (i) the behavior and acts of any attendees, service providers, or others that access the space as a part of your booking, and

    • (ii) ensuring that the user does not exceed any limitations identified in the booking.

  • You are responsible for maintaining the cleanliness and energy of the space.

  • You must build a buffer of 30 minutes before and after your booking to ensure appropriate setup and cleanup. If your event is scheduled from 1 pm to 3 pm, you must reserve your booking from 12:30 pm to 3:30 pm. This is a necessary requirement to ensure a smooth and successful event.

  • If you notice the trash is full, please empty it upstairs in the kitchen. If you need to remove the bag, replacement bags are in the bottom of the trash can. If you have food trash, please dispose of it in the kitchen at the top of the stairs. There is also a bin for recycling in the kitchen.

  • If you or any clients use the mason jars next to the water cooler, please place dirty glasses in the dishwasher or hand wash and leave to dry on the rack. 

  • You are responsible for and accept all liability for any intentional or unintentional damage done to the space or amenities during your booking by attendees or service providers.

  • Cleaning fee - if you leave Sakala in such a state that more than minimal cleanup must be done by someone else after your booking, you will be charged $25 the first time and $50 the second time. If it continues to be a problem, you will be asked to pay an additional $25 every time you book the space.


III. Community Guidelines:

  • Treat others with kindness and respect. 

  • Add to the community altar; do not remove anyone else’s offrendas.

  • Treat Sakala as if it were your own home. 

  • Leave the space better than you found it.

  • Uplift and promote other Sakala community members. 

  • Hold others accountable while also taking responsibility for your actions.

  • Do not engage in illegal activities on the premises.


IV. Insurance: 

We kindly ask that our facilitators acquire professional and general liability insurance to ensure adequate coverage for your event. It is essential to maintain this insurance throughout the term of our agreement to protect all parties involved. Thank you for your attention to this matter.

  • General Liability: Commercial general liability insurance covering premises operations, fire damage, independent contractors, products and completed operations, blanket contractual liability, personal injury, and advertising liability with minimum limits as follows:

    • $1,000,000 each occurrence;
