All fees are subject to 13% Harmonized Sales Tax (HST).

We encourage you to read the seminar descriptions carefully to make sure the topic and amount of reading are a good match for you. We always happy to provide more information about a seminar or put you in contact with a seminar leader.

You can always find all readings listed on each seminar page and get details on length using book ISBNs. You are free to change your seminar before July 1, 2022, provided there is space in the seminar you want to move to and you are able to complete any preparation required. There is no cost to change seminars.

After July 1, we cannot accommodate any change in seminar. No refunds will be given should you wish to change seminars after July 1.

The Toronto Pursuits program requires a nonrefundable deposit of C$300 per person at the time of registration. The deposit will hold your reservation until the full balance of payment is made. Classical Pursuits does not guarantee a place in a seminar without a deposit.
