The second week of the course will take place as a 4 -day intensive learning retreat in the West Lexham in Norfolk , UK>
The center provides delicious vegetarian menus which will be designed to suit our group. All dietary requirements can be catered for.
We encourage you to attend all sessions. However all lessons are recorded, so if you miss a session due to illness or other reasons you will be able to catch up, however please be prepared to complete some homework to demonstrate your engagement with the material as certification will be only possible after completing 100% of the course.
The majority of the course is designed to be IRL, only the theory sessions will be on zoom. Nevertheless all sessions will also run live and will be recorded so in case one is self-isolating or Ill there are options to catch up.
In case of a lockdown we will transfer all the course online for the duration of the lockdown. The sessions will be tweaked so that they can be as fun, engaging and layered as they would be in IRL.
Just let us know and we will live stream you in. If you are ill: no worries the sessions will be recorded.
In case of travel restrictions or quarantine we would sadly have to let go of the retreat. All students will be refunded £250 and we will run an intensive in London.
