Updated COVID Policy @ Synergia Ranch (rev 9.5.22)

Given the close physical contact involved in GROF® Breathwork, we continue to be committed to optimal safety.  As of September 1, 2022 the Synergia Ranch updated their Covid Policy.  In concert with Synergia, the Grof Legacy Project is now focused on pre-testing before arrival.

Pre-testing for vaccinated guests:

Please email or text a photo of your vaccination card or vaccination verification. The image will be deleted once noted.  We ask that you purchase a 2-pkg COVID rapid home test before you travel.  Please take the first test up to three days prior to your trip to NM, and email your negative results to Kirsten. We ask that you take the second test just prior to arriving at the retreat center. Please do not continue to the center if you test positive. Contact Kirsten as soon as possible: 310-699-2001

Pre-testing for those not fully vaccinated:

A PCR lab test will be required within 72 hours of your travel to the ranch.  Please do not continue to the center if you test positive.  Contact Kirsten as soon as possible: 310-699-2001

In addition to pre-testing, we ask that you exercise an abundance of caution in the time between your test and arrival at the ranch.  Please make conservative choices in relation to social activities.  For those traveling by air and other public transportation, please consider wearing a mask en route.

While indoors we will maximize cross ventilation, use of ceiling fans, and have an air purifier in use.  Thanks to typically beautiful September weather we will be able to enjoy outdoor dining.

We are so grateful to have an opportunity to work in-person again and want to make this retreat as safe and comfortable as possible for everyone.

Cancellation Due to Positive Results

In the event you must cancel due to a positive COVID test, your funds will be transferable to a future event minus a $250 catering and admin fee. You may use the transferred amount within one year of the original retreat start date.
