Frequently Asked Questions
What if I have to miss a class?
All classes are recorded and a link will be sent to each student within one day. You are free to download recordings and watch as many times as you like.
What's included in the course?
Experience a wonderful blend of experiential mindfulness and emotional intelligence exercises to refine and define who you are, sharing in a safe space, and weekly "Live-Withs" to shift your perspective on how you see yourself and the world. Other than practicing the tools, there is no homework.
CIJ Clarity Catalyst for Adults includes 8 x 120-minute sessions via Zoom. After each class, you will be emailed a link to the Zoom recording, a PDF of the PowerPoint Presentation, and a screensaver with the "Live With" motto for that class. Meaningful conversations with your peer coaching partner mid-week land the learning and solidify the group. You may choose to participate in the optional 21-day journaling and meditation challenge, which is encouraged but not required. Also included is a closed Facebook Group with only participants from your class, and a free 30-minute coaching session with Sydel.
CIJ Insight for Life for Kids and Teens includes 8 x 60-minute sessions. All coursework is done online via Zoom. After each class, students will be emailed a link to the Zoom recording, a PDF of the PowerPoint Presentation, and a screensaver with the "Live With" motto for that class. Parents will be emailed a short summary of what was covered in that day's lesson.
How much time will I need to commit to this course?
Apart from actual classroom time, the adult class includes one additional 30-minute peer coaching call per week. There is no additional time commitment for the Teen class. (No homework!)
You'll be interested to know that people who take this class actually feel like they have MORE time since their relationship with time shifts once they learn to live more in the moment. Doesn't that sound wonderful?
What additional paperwork is needed for students who are minors?
Parents/guardians must sign a Hold Harmless Agreement for their minor children. All students taking the Kids and Teens class and their parents will be asked to take a short survey before and after the course to track student growth. These surveys are held in the strictest confidence.
What happens in CIJ stays in CIJ! All participants are required to commit to the strictest confidentiality. Our deepest learning and growth happen in the safe space of community, where we hold space for one another and lift each other higher. You are welcome to share the tools you learn, but not what others have shared about themselves or their experiences.
What materials are needed for the course?
You will need: a new journal that you love, a notebook and pen to take notes during class, Post-It notes, six 3x5 cards, and a small meditation cushion.
What's your refund policy?
We guarantee you will love this course, touted to be the most life-transforming course ever to be taught at Stanford University. If you attend all classes, practice all the tools, complete all the "Soulwork", participate in all the peer coaching, and do not feel you have received any benefits, we will refund you 100%. If you are unable to start the course for the dates you enrolled, you may put your enrollment on hold and take the class at a later date, if needed.
