Terms and Conditions
for the Energy Healing Institute Program
- This document contains very important information regarding your rights and obligations, as well as conditions, limitations, and exclusions that might apply to you. Please read it carefully.
- Order Acceptance and Cancellation. You agree that your registration and tendering of payment is an offer to purchase, under these Terms, enrollment in the Program. All registrations must be accepted by us before you are considered enrolled in the Program. We may choose not to accept registrations and offer enrollments at our sole discretion, even after we send you a confirmation email with details concerning your registration request.
- Prices and Payment Terms.
- All prices, discounts, and promotions posted on our Site are subject to change without notice. The price charged for the Program will be the price in effect at the time the order is placed (the “Program Price”). Price increases will only apply to orders placed after such changes. Posted prices do not include taxes or charges for shipping and handling, as applicable. All such taxes and charges will be added to your total and will be itemized in your shopping cart. We strive to display accurate price information, however we may, on occasion, make inadvertent typographical errors, inaccuracies or omissions related to pricing and availability. We reserve the right to correct any errors, inaccuracies, or omissions at any time and to cancel any orders arising from such occurrences.
- The following terms may be used by us to communicate pricing information:
- "Normal price" references our normal price for the Program.
- "Early bird price" refers to a reduced price for the Program offered for enrollees who register and make all of the payments we require on or prior to the date the early bird price is stated to expire.
- Terms of payment are within our sole discretion and, unless otherwise agreed by us in writing, payment must be received by us before our acceptance of an order. We currently use Stripe to accept payment for your registration. You represent and warrant that (i) the credit card information you supply to Stripe or any other payment vendor we use is true, correct and complete, (ii) you are duly authorized to use such credit card for the purchase, (iii) charges incurred by you will be honored by your credit card company, and (iv) you will pay charges incurred by you at the posted prices, including shipping and handling charges and all applicable taxes, if any, regardless of the amount quoted on the Site at the time of your order.
- We may offer payment plans for you to use to pay for your registration in the Program. If you select as part of your registration that you wish to use a specific payment plan to pay for the Program, you agree to make timely payments in full according to the payment schedule associated with your selected payment plan (your “Payment Plan”). Once you have registered with a payment plan, you may not change your Payment Plan without our written permission. If we do not offer you a payment plan or you opt not to use a payment plan, you will be required to pay the Program Price for registration in full up front.
- Prerequisites for Enrollment. In order to register for the Program, you must have completed all prerequisites listed on the Program Page.
- Rules and Requirements. By registering for and enrolling in the Program, you understand and agree to the following and will remain bound by the following even after you complete the Program:
- Program Requirements:
- You understand that the Program is truly a program and not a course or workshop – it will take exhaustive work on your part to complete and you agree to put in that exhaustive work.
- You agree to adhere to all Program requirements and you understand that you will not be allowed to complete the Program unless you do so. You can expect these Program requirements to include, among other requirements:
- submitting all required assignments by the required deadlines and via the required submission methods,
- finding appropriate practice clients and procuring their consent to engage in practice client sessions;
- completing the required number of hours of practice client sessions; and
- purchasing and maintaining a liability insurance policy in the required amounts with the required coverage on or before the date required for the Program.
- You agree to make timely payments to us in full as required by the Payment Plan.
- You agree to engage in appropriate behavior within and outside of the Program, including with your peer group enrolled in the Program. You also agree that it is ultimately in our sole discretion to determine whether your behavior is appropriate.
- You agree to work productively and in a timely fashion towards finishing all of the requirements necessary to complete the Program and acquire your certification. Whether you are working productively and in a timely fashion is in our sole discretion.
- You agree that you will not represent to anyone else that you have completed the Program or any other program we offer until you have actually done so.
- Medical, Clinical, and Therapeutic Care:
- You will not diagnose any mental, emotional, behavioral, physical or spiritual condition unless you are licensed and permitted to do so by applicable law and you understand that we do not offer any programs which would legally permit you to make diagnoses of any kind.
- You will not attempt to treat a client seeking healing for trauma of any kind unless: (A) you are licensed and permitted to do so by applicable law or (B) the client has authorized you to work in conjunction with their professional counselor or therapist who is licensed and permitted to treat a client seeking healing for trauma. Further, you understand that we do not offer any programs which would permit you to legally independently treat a client seeking healing for trauma.
- You will always advise others that (A) energy healing treatments and sessions are not an alternative to or substitute for medical, clinical, or therapeutic care and (B) they should seek and follow the advice of licensed medical, clinical, and therapeutic professionals.
- Legal, Ethical, and Responsible Practice:
- You will practice energy healing in accordance with all legal requirements and you understand that you are responsible for understanding the legal requirements for energy healing practice in the place where you intend to practice it. You also understand that we do not and will not offer any legal advice concerning how to practice energy healing within the bounds of the law.
- You agree to always adhere to the Guidelines for Intentional Practice posted on the Site.
- You will not practice energy healing on your friends or family.
- You will not practice energy healing on a minor whose parent or legal guardian has not given their consent.
You acknowledge and agree to all of our disclaimers set forth in the ToS and the Program Page.
- Our Duties. After we accept your registration and you become enrolled in the Program, we will do the following for as long as you are enrolled in the Program: (i) provide you access to Program materials, (ii) guide you in learning and practicing the knowledge and skills set forth on the Program Page, (iii) review your required submissions for the Program and provide feedback, (iv) offer virtual “office hours” as set forth on the Program Page, and (v) once you have completed all of the Program requirements, provide you with your Certificate of Achievement for the Program.
Even if your enrollment in the Program terminated prior to your completion of the Program, you will owe us the full amount of the Program Price, subject to Section 8. This means that we will continue to bill you on your Payment Plan for unpaid amounts of the Program Price, if applicable and subject to Section 8.
- Partial Refunds or Cessation of Payments on Payment Plan. If we receive a Termination Notice from you, you may be entitled to: (i) a partial refund of the Program Price, if you did not utilize a Payment Plan and paid the Program Price in full up front, or (ii) cease making payments on your Payment Plan.
- If you paid the Program Price in full up front, did not utilize a Payment Plan, and:
- we receive your Termination Notice within first thirty (30) days following the start of the Program (inclusive of the date on which the Program began), then we will issue to you a partial refund in the amount of 75% of the Program Price.
- we receive your Termination Notice between the thirty-first (31st) day and the sixtieth (60th) day following the start of the Program, then we will issue to you a partial refund in the amount of 50% of the Program Price.
- If you utilized a Payment Plan, have timely made all required payments under your Payment Plan, and we receive your Termination Notice on or before the sixtieth (60th) day following the start of the Program, then you will no longer owe us any future payments on your Payment Plan.
We will promptly process any refund you are owed. Any refund we issue to you will be credited back to the same payment method used to make the original purchase. Any refund we do issue to you will be reduced by any fees we incurred in processing your original payment and your refund.
