We will offer a full refund of your paid tuition if you decide to officially withdraw from a course/training program within 30 days from when your first module/course begins.  

Emergency Cancellations

We make a commitment to hold our live sessions and to maintain our syllabus as scheduled and we hope you’ll fully participate in the group discussions and are able to see the course to completion. However, we recognize that some events are out of our control.

If you are unable to participate in your cohort activities, please notify the instructor in advance if at all possible.  It is possible that we can add you to another cohort.

In the event of unforeseen circumstances such as power outages or illness that prevents WisdomWay™ Institute from holding a session as scheduled, or keeps us from making content available in accordance with our planned syllabus the instructor will provide a makeup session that accommodates the needs of the group as completely as possible. Please be sure to provide the best email and phone number for emergency cancellations to allow us the opportunity to provide you notice.

If difficulties cause significant disruption to our scheduled syllabus and we are not able to remedy it, you will be given the option to repeat a future course at no additional cost or will be refunded 100% in the absence of an alternative.

WisdomWay™  Institute is not responsible for any additional costs or damages other than the tuition refunds described above.


Course Content and Participation
I have read the course description and I understand that:

WisdomWay™  Institute's programs often will invite formal and informal meditation and mindful movement as well as an opportunity for relaxation, stress reeducation and relief of muscular tension. As is the case with any physical activity, the risk of injury, even serious or disabling, is always present and cannot be entirely eliminated. If I experience any pain or discomfort, I will listen to my body, discontinue the activity, and ask for support from the instructor. I will continue to breathe smoothly. I assume full responsibility for any and all damages, which may incur through participation.

I understand that meditation can be unhelpful or even harmful if I have certain psychiatric conditions. I understand that it is my responsibility to communicate with my mental health practitioners and to get approval from them for my participation in this course.

I understand that an MBSR course or other offerings of WisdomWay™ Institute are not a substitute for medical attention nor is it a substitute for psychotherapy or mental health care.

I affirm that a licensed physician has verified my good health and physical condition to participate in such a fitness program. In addition, I will make the instructor aware of any medical conditions or physical limitations before class.

I also affirm that I alone am responsible to decide whether to practice meditation and/or movement/yoga and participation is at my own risk.

I hereby agree to irrevocably release and waive any claims that I have now or may have hereafter against WisdomWay™ Institute and its instructors or staff.

I acknowledge I have read and fully understand and agree to the above terms. I agree to this agreement voluntarily and recognize that my enrollment serves as complete and unconditional release of all liability to the greatest extent allowed by law.

Video/Photograph Release Form
I hereby grant WisdomWay™ Institute the irrevocable right and permission to use photographs and/or video recordings of me on wisdomwayinstitute.com and other websites and in publications, promotional flyers, educational materials, derivative works, or for any other similar purpose without compensation to me.

I understand and agree that such photographs and/or video recordings of me may be placed on the Internet. I also understand and agree that I may be identified by name and/or title in printed, Internet or broadcast information that might accompany the photographs and/or video recordings of me. I waive the right to approve the final product. I agree that all such portraits, pictures, photographs, video and audio recordings, and any reproductions thereof, and all plates, negatives, recording tape and digital files are and shall remain the property of the WisdomWay™ Institute.

I hereby release, acquit and forever discharge WisdomWay™ Institute its current and former trustees, agents, officers and employees of the above-named entities from any and all claims, demands, rights, promises, damages and liabilities arising out of or in connection with the use or distribution of said photographs and/or video recordings, including but not limited to any claims for invasion of privacy, appropriation of likeness or defamation.
