Frequently Asked Questions
How are the workshops structured?
Each workshop is divided into Teaching Sessions, where each Session consists of a group of recorded instructional videos plus additional multimedia materials to supplement and support your practice. There are no set class times: you work with the Sessions according to your own schedule. Once a Session is made available in a workshop, it remains available for your review and practice for the duration of the course.
Teaching Sessions are introduced twice a week, each Saturday and Tuesday, and conclude with practice instructions for you to follow until the next Session becomes available.
Workshops generally begin on a Thursday at noon (Eastern U.S. or New York time), with Instructions that will help you become familiar with the site and the practice you are about to begin. The first Teaching Session will be introduced on a Saturday, with new Sessions becoming available each Tuesday and Saturday thereafter. A concluding Session is introduced on the last Tuesday of the course, helping you bring all that you have learned together. The workshops officially conclude at midnight, on Sunday night.
What are our workshops like?
Our workshops are practical and experiential rather than academic or purely conceptual. Each workshop is presented in a logical sequence of instruction or teachings, taking you step-by-step through the practices. Workshop sessions include specific instruction for your practice, with guided meditations or exercises where you can follow along with the teacher.
How is support and guidance provided?
Our teachers make themselves available to answer your questions for the duration of the workshop, using our private forums and workshop messaging system. You are part of a group attending and learning together from around the world, and so there is also community support as you can learn from the experiences and questions of your fellow participants.
Technical support is also provided to help you with any issues you might have in navigating the course sites - we are here to help make your experience enjoyable as well as enlightening!
What is your cancellation policy?
Enroll with complete peace of mind: You may cancel your enrollment and receive a full refund up until the end of the first week of the workshop.
Will I be able to connect with others in the course?
In our workshops we try to create the atmosphere and sacred space of live events.You will be learning and practicing with participants from all around the world. You are welcome to actively interact with your fellow students by sharing your experiences, asking questions, and discussing the experiences of others via our private forums, chat room, and personal messaging system.
A lot of the feedback we receive is that working with the teachers and the supportive welcoming community of the like-minded people is one of the most enjoyable parts of our workshops.
Privacy is important to me. Is participation in the workshop discussions required to attend a workshop?
All participation in the discussions is optional. You can choose to work quietly and privately in the background, working with the teaching sessions and learning from the experiences of others.
Everyone can ask questions of the teachers: publicly via forums or privately via the messenger.
I am interested in a workshop that has already started. Can I join late?
Yes, you can join any time while the workshop is in progress. Once a teaching session has been introduced, it remains available for your review and practice for the duration of the workshop. For any late enrollments, we will automatically extend your access to make sure you have ample time to complete all teaching sessions. Please note: the teacher support ends at the official closing date of the workshop.
What do I need in order to attend?
All that is required is a web browser and a broadband connection to the internet such as Cable or DSL.
Do I need to be a computer expert to attend?
Not at all. A basic familiarity of web surfing, using a browser, is all that is needed. The workshop course sites are easy to use and navigate, and we are always here to help if you need assistance.
Are there any prerequisites to our programs?
Our workshops do not require any previous experience. They are intended for beginners and experienced practitioners alike. All the basics are covered for those who are new to the practices, and advanced instruction is also provided for those who are ready for more.
How much time should I allow for participating in an online workshop?
The workshop Teaching Sessions are generally an hour or less in total viewing time, but your overall progress depends to a great extent on the amount of time you can dedicate to your personal practice. For most workshops, try to allow at least twenty minutes each day for a formal practice or exercises. It is also possible to devote your full time to a workshop, approaching it as a private retreat. In some cases, specific instruction is provided to help you organize your practice in this way.
