Informed Consent for Participation
It is important to understand the nature of the holistic activities you are participating in prior to registration and booking. Information about the nature of the course and activities is contained in the description for that particular course or activity on the website (or elsewhere on the site if referring to one-to-ones). If you are unfamiliar with any of the references or concepts conveyed in these descriptions, then please research their background. If you are still in doubt, ask the organisers before registration.
In general, you will be participating in holistic and therapeutic activities as part of your holistic course, class or Retreat or other events or one-to-one sessions. These activities may include (but are not limited to) the following: meditation, relaxation exercises, breathwork, mindfulness exercises, energy work (such as ‘Qigong’), sharing work (where you share your feelings with the group), gentle physical movement, voice dialogue, somatic experience exercises, reiki, therapeutic written exercises (such as diary entries to understand your state of mind), therapeutic partner exercises (such as sharing how you feel with a partner, or offering healing in the form of gentle physical touch), movement and expression exercises, healing sound exercises, detoxing, cleansing, raw food, superfoods, holistic beauty and so on.
You therefore participate in the holistic course, event or one-to-one fully aware of their therapeutic content. A simple exercise, like meditation, can be mentally activating, as well as calming. Simple physical movements can be physically activating, as well as calming. Holistic activities do create physical, mental and emotional effects.
You participate in the holistic exercises aware that they may well be physically, emotionally and psychologically challenging. If, having informed yourself of the nature of these holistic activities, you think you may have a physical or psychological condition, or suspect you may have one, that may be exacerbated by the exercises, then do consult a medical doctor or psychiatrist before booking, and certainly before attending.
In any event, if you attend the course, event or one-to-one and thus participate in the holistic activities, it is incumbent on you to judge exercise by exercise whether you are comfortable with them, and capable of doing them. If you at any time feel uncomfortable, either physically or psychologically, with any exercise, then either refrain from doing it, or stop doing it if you have already started. If you feel uncomfortable with doing a partner exercise, that might involve verbal sharing or physical touch, then either refrain from doing it, or stop doing it if you have already started.
The holistic activities are powerful. That is why people participate in these courses, events or one-to-ones: they are therapeutic. And it is important that you understand the potential power of these exercises before you register for participation.
Your agreeing to these terms and conditions, and your subsequent participation in the courses, events or one-to-ones and their holistic activities, demonstrates your informed consent to these course and activities.
