Quiet Healing Center is a health service, which offers natural, non-allopathic therapies and health related workshops to an international clientele. We also run in-house accommodation facilities for Indian and foreign clients, who want to stay with us. Consumption of alcohol is not permitted in our premises.

We will inform you within the next few days about availability and email you all necessary bank information for making an advance deposit to the Quiet Healing Center in order to confirm your booking.
For room bookings, confirmation is made by paying an advance deposit based on the number of days. For courses and workshops, confirmation is made by paying an advance deposit of at least 20% of the total price. For therapies, confirmation is made by paying an advance of ₹ 1,000 (one thousand rupees).
Prices for health-related workshops and courses include teaching fees, cost of materials, meals and GST. Registrations are subject to first-come first-serve basis and are closed once our capacity has been reached.
2. Mode of Payment
Advances from within India may be made through UPI, online transfer (NEFT) from your home, or bank draft/cheque. Advances from abroad may be made by bank draft/cheque, SWIFT transfer or, if your bank provides this facility, online from your home.
Payments may be made through UPI (GPay, PhonePe, PayTM etc. for Indian residents), debit/credit card, and bank transfer (NEFT & SWIFT). To cover bank charges on card payments, 2% is charged on foreign credit cards; no charges are added for payments through Indian debit or credit cards.
3. Refund and Cancellation Policy
Advances for room bookings are in principle non-refundable. Exceptions may be made if you cancel at least one month beforehand. In this case, bank charges and a small admin fee will be deducted. You can also opt to keep your payment as an outstanding advance for use within 6 months.
Advances for therapies are in principle non-refundable. However, in case you cancel your therapy at least 24 hours beforehand, your payment will be kept as an outstanding advance for use within 6 months.
Workshops and courses may be canceled due to an insufficient number of clients. Check with our reception a few days before your workshop or course starts to avoid unnecessary travel.
If a workshop or course is canceled, your advance will be fully refunded. We do not accept, however, any further liability due to cancellations.
In case you have to leave the workshop or course due to illness or any other personal reason, we will not be liable to make any refund.
According to Indian government regulations, we register foreign clients using our accommodation facilities with the Foreigners Regional Registration Office (FRRO) to whom we provide your passport and visa details online.
