Refund and Returns Policy

Our R E S P E C T Policy

What does RESPECT mean to me? It means that payments for events, Spaces, Courses, and memberships are non-refundable.

Here’s my logic. 

When you buy a ticket to a concert, and then decide you don’t feel like going, it’s too cold, it’s too far to drive, or you can’t find a babysitter, or whatever… what happens? You don’t go. You stay home. You miss out.

You don’t write to the performer and ask for your money back. Nope. I know life happens. The last few years have proved that.  But we’ve put in the same amount of planning whether you show or not.  Harsh?  Sorry. That’s the way it is. In Athena Village you may be purchasing Events, Spaces, Courses etc. from others who may have different policies, but if they don’t say otherwise, this is our AV way.

Bottom line: Respect your time. Respect mine. Say “yes” to the experiences that you really want — and show up. Showing up is cool. I approve. So would Aretha.

YOU CAN always send someone in your place to a Zoom event! 

SUBSCRIPTIONS: You will be notified prior to renewal.  You can always cancel your subscription, and you can always come back.
