I took your 12-week course “Say What You Mean,” based on the book. Will this be different?
Yes. This course is focused specifically on authentic self-expression and will include new material and different practices than the 12-week course. If you haven’t taken the 12-week course, you are still welcome to participate in this course.
Do I need to read the book to take this course?
We strongly recommend reading the book Say What You Mean prior to (or during) the course. It will provide a complete framework and solid foundation for the learning in the course.
How much of the course is taught by Oren and how much by the course assistant?
The course is taught entirely by Oren, with ample opportunities for coaching and personal exchanges. The course assistant’s sole role is to provide extra support with written correspondence via Q&A in the online group forum between sessions.
I have to miss a few of the sessions. Will they be recorded?
Yes. All of the live sessions will be recorded and available for viewing afterwards. Participants will have indefinite access to the audio recordings from the course.
My internet is slow. Can I call in by phone?
Yes - you can join the live calls on your laptop, mobile device, or by dialing in by phone. For laptop and mobile you will need to download the Zoom app (instructions will be provided. For phone, you must be able to place a call to regular number (it is not a toll-free call).
Does the course include anything else other than the 90 minute weekly sessions?
Yes. In addition to the live 90-minute sessions, each week includes: a written reflection from Oren; suggestions for practice; optional interactive exercises with a buddy; optional online correspondence in the course forums.
How much time will it take me to participate in the course each week?
That depends on you. The minimum amount of time is 90 minutes for the weekly sessions. We recommend spending at least another hour per week doing the practices. Some participants may choose to spend more or less time depending on their schedule.
I can’t afford the tuition for the course. Do you offer scholarships or discounts?
Yes. We’re committed to making these tools and training available to everyone regardless of their ability to pay. Scholarships are offered on a self-selected honors system. Click here for more information on scholarships.
My schedule changed and I’m no longer available on Thursday evenings. Can I get a refund?
Since all sessions are recorded and available for viewing afterwards, we encourage you to stay in the course and simply view (or listen) to the sessions on your own schedule. If you would still like to cancel, you may do so as long as we receive your request before the course begins, less a $25 administrative fee. There is no refund after the course begins on October 17th.
Is there a cost for CEs and Professional credits? How do I apply?
