Registration, Cancellations, & Logistics


Dr. Estés' trainings generally fill within days or weeks of opening registration. When possible, returning students will receive the first announcement of a training and be given a brief window to register. The next announcement will be sent to Dr. Estés' email list. If you wish to attend Dr. Estés' trainings in a future year, be sure to sign up for her email list to be notified when the trainings open. We suggest you register for your space as soon as possible when you get the notification. 



Please register for the trainings via this website. If you need assistance, please contact Nona Gandelman at

A deposit or payment in full must be received to reserve your space in a training. Any remaining balance  is due by the date posted on the training description page. If you do not pay tuition balances by the due dates, we may assume you are not attending and will open your spot to someone else.

Tuition does not include your accommodation at Sunrise Ranch, or your personal travel to and from Loveland, Colorado. 

Here are links to the details for each of Dr. Estés' trainings:


When a training is full, we will update the training description page on this website with a "training full" notice and an online form to add yourself to the waitlist for that training. If your name comes to the top of the waitlist, you will be invited by email to attend the training. If this invitation is after the tuition deposit due date for that training, full tuition will be due to reserve your space.

Each training has a new waitlist each year, with no carryovers from previous years or lists.


Our cancellation and transfer policies are created and maintained largely due to the extensive waitlist that develops for each training. We simply cannot accommodate all the people who wish to attend. In light of this, we ask registrants to let us know as soon as possible if cancellation is necessary, so we can invite someone on the waitlist. Even more important, please register only if you are sure (barring the unforeseen) you can and will come to the training.

If you must cancel your registration  please do so at your earliest convenience.

All cancellations must be received in writing via email sent to Please do not call to cancel your registration, as we need a written record of this request.

Cancellation refunds fees are in increments of $100, $300, and $500. Please check the description page for your specific training to see the exact refund deadline dates for that training.

No refunds will be given for cancellations made after the final cancellation deadline. Additionally, if you fail to show up to registration,  you will not be given a refund and you cannot transfer to any future trainings.

By registering for these trainings you are agreeing to all guidelines, policies, and cancellation fees.

Refunds may be paid by check and may take up to three weeks to process.

Please note: We will only process cancellations for tuition. You are responsible for cancelling your own accommodations and travel. 


  • Transfers are valid one time for the same training the following year only.

  • Transfers are non-refundable.

  • You can transfer to next year's training up to eight weeks before your training begins.

  • Requests for transfers must be made in writing at the time of cancellation.

  • Please do not make transfer requests by phone, as we need a written record of your request.

  • A $100 fee will apply to all transfers.

  • If the following year’s training tuition increases, you will be responsible for paying the difference when registration opens the following year.



All of Dr. Estés’ trainings take place at Sunrise Ranch in Loveland, Colorado. Once you are registered for a training, contact Sunrise Ranch as soon as possible to register for your accommodations. The Ranch is small and fills quickly. Please do not reserve accommodations at Sunrise Ranch if you are not yet registered or are on the waitlist, to ensure that people who are definitely coming are able to get a room.

The rigorous daily training schedule makes commuting more than 30 minutes from the Ranch difficult.  

Sunrise Ranch sets their own room and commuter fees. Your accommodations fee includes three healthy meals and two snacks per day. We eat farm-to-table quite a bit, as much of the food is grown at the Ranch and is delicious. If you stay offsite in a lodging of your choosing, you still need to register with the Ranch and pay a facilities usage fee, a “commuter” fee.

Various room sizes, including shared rooms with shared bathrooms, are available. You can read more here, and contact guest services to book your stay by contacting: To contact Sunrise Ranch by phone call between 8:30am and 5:00pm Mountain Time at 1-877-786-0078 or local 1-970-679-4200.

Sunrise Ranch's address is 100 Sunrise Ranch Road, Loveland, Colorado 80538 USA.

If the Ranch is full or if you prefer a private room and bath, Sunrise Ranch guest services can arrange a room for you at a special rate at the newly upgraded La Quinta Inn and Suites, 1450 Cascade Ave, Loveland. The Inn is 12 minutes from the Ranch.

We will run a shuttle from the La Quinta to the Ranch and back and the beginning and end of every day. Participants are also welcome to stay at other hotels and B&Bs in Loveland and arrange for their own transportation. We will send specific information about hotel shuttle logistics after you register.

The closest airport is Denver International Airport. Sunrise Ranch is approximately two hours north west from the airport. Plan to be at training registration at Sunrise Ranch between 1pm-5pm the first day of the training.  Please see the schedule in each training section.
