Can individual and corporate customers get a VAT refund

Individual customers: These customers will not be able to get VAT refund from their purchase of event tickets. This is mainly because VAT is a “customer” tax. 

Moreover, tax-free sales in the EU only relate to goods/products and not to services received in the EU. Mindvalley events are categorised as ‘sales of services’.

Corporate customers: VAT refunds eligibility for corporations depend on their country taxation laws, policies, their residence status amongst many other rules that apply towards VAT refund and processing. Several websites, like this one, act as a good reference check on the process. We also recommend checking with your local tax authorities and familiarising yourself with the VAT refund process or checking with your finance representative for the same.

Do you offer shorter packages

Your chosen ticket, either 1-week (7 days), 2-week (14 days) or 3-week (21 days) ticket, will always activate on a Monday and expire on Sunday. This is applicable to adults, teens and kids tickets.

For example, if you have a one week ticket and you decide to join us from Wednesday, your ticket will expire on the Sunday of that week.

Each Monday we will host registration and an official induction session for all of those people joining us from that week onwards.

You can find more information on current pricing here.

Program and Accommodation

Is this event for me

Mindvalley University is for the change-markers and trailblazers. Those who won’t settle for ordinary. Those lighting the way for others. Whether you’re at the beginning of your journey to greatness or showing others how it’s done, you’re welcome. 

What will I learn

Including, but not limited to: entrepreneurship, leadership, public speaking, marketing, creativity, personal growth, coaching, spirituality, health and wellness, love and romance, sexuality,  parenting, financials and mindfulness. 

When will the exact program be announced

A program outline for each age group will be announced at the beginning of 2020. You can see last years schedule here which will give you a glimpse of what you can expect. 

Where should I book accommodation in Amsterdam 

Participants are responsible for arranging their own accommodation. When you secure your ticket, you’ll be sent information about where and how to book accommodation within Amsterdam, including links to local booking sites, and local rental companies. You will also receive an invite to join our closed Facebook group so you can meet other tribe, and arrange accommodation options together, if you wish. 

We recommend booking your accommodation as soon as possible, as the summer months are very busy in Amsterdam.  

If you want to share accommodation, you’ll be able to give details to our tribe in our private Tribe Facebook Group. Access to this group will be shared with you once you’ve purchased your ticket.

What travel dates do you recommend

The program will start on Monday, July 13th with the official program at the hub. We recommend you to fly in on the weekend of July 11-12. The Hub will be open until July 31st with the last workshop taking place at the HUB on that day. Consider staying in Amsterdam until 2nd of August.

Are you planning any activities for youth under the age of 18 years in Amsterdam


We’re working on putting together the curriculum and program for nursery (3-5), kids (6-12), and teens (13-17) for Mindvalley University. You can expect to see the outline of the program by the beginning of 2020. 

There are 1, 2 and 3-week tickets available for all age groups. You can find more information on current pricing here.

Please note: Nursery, kids and teens programs are in English. It’s important that each young person attending the program has a good understanding of the English language and can communicate proficiently. The program is not meant as an English language study programme. The 3-5 year olds group is a bit exceptional as the kids are very young and might not be fluent in a foreign language, but please note that all of the activities are carried out in English.

We aim to create flexibility in the age groups. If the head teachers feels that a child should be moved to a different age group, there will be some flexibility here, depending on availability in the groups.

How can I register for the Mindvalley Premium Seminars

You’ll get more information about the Premium seminars after you’ve purchased your ticket to Mindvalley University and after we confirm the teachers. We’ll be opening up ticket sales to these seminars in a few months.

I want to lead a session at Mindvalley University 2020. What should I do to make it happen

We have taken your feedback and our learnings from last year and will be creating more space for tribe led activities and sessions from Monday to Friday. 

If you wish to lead a session or workshop at Mindvalley University, please fill out an application form here.

Please note: Once you are approved, you would first need to secure your Mindvalley University ticket to be able to take the stage, lead a session or a workshop.

Packing Guide

What is the dress code

During the day, you’ll want to wear something comfortable and casual. Something you can move in. In the evening, pretty much anything goes. Ladies, pack dresses and heels if you are feeling inspired, and guys, feel free to pack a shirt and dress pants if you wish… it’s totally up to you! 

You are not likely to need what you think of as summer clothes, like shorts and sandals. Pack jeans or long pants; long-sleeved shirts and tops; and a sweater, blazer, or lightweight jacket for layering. A cashmere pashmina or poncho might come in handy for women.

July is generally the warmest month of the year in Amsterdam, with temperatures ranging between nighttime lows of 13° C (54° F) and midday highs around 22° C (72° F).

Pack comfortable shoes as you’ll probably be doing a lot of walking on the beautiful streets of Amsterdam.

What should I bring with me

The most important thing is a positive attitude, an open mind and the willingness to receive a lot of knowledge and at the same time have a lot of fun!
