We have had countless successful Empath Academies with very few problems, and yet it is very important for you to carefully read this document in the unlikely event that some issue or problem may arise. This document also details the refund policy, of which it is your responsibility to know and to agree to, in advance of your registration.
Terms and Conditions:
1) Age Requirement:
You must be at least 19 years of age to participate in the Empath Academy.
2) Refund policy
ACCELERATED REFUND POLICY:
The spaces in the accelerated academy are limited and at a premium. Think carefully before you register - are you able to commit yourself fully to this course? If you need to withdraw from the Empath Academy at any time, you agree to notify myself, (Dr. Michael Smith) immediately. If you give enough advance notice, and I am able to fill your spot by another participant on the waiting list, then you will be offered a full refund minus the standard $50 cancellation fee. If you withdraw at any time 10 days prior to the start of the course, or after the course has begun, you are not entitled to a refund. However, I will use my discretion in perhaps offering a partial refund based on the circumstances of your withdrawal (and whether or not I am able to find a replacement participant).
Foundational refund policy: Refunds are at the discretion of Michael Smith.
3) Connecting to the Phone Line:
The course is conducted over a reliable phone conference line, and in most instances, there are no connection issues. (unless you use Magic Jack, we've had issues in the past with this service). If you are outside the United States there are many local phone numbers in many countries so you won't have to pay long distance if your city/country is listed. You can find out if you can connect for free here: http://www.instantteleseminar.com/local
4) Photo & Birth Date Permission:
For the accelerated group only: you consent to give Michael Smith permission to crop a photo of you for the purposes of being included in the course handout. Your photo will not be used in any other way. Although the day and month of your birth will be shared with your classmates (only if you consent), the year will not be shared.
5) Sacred Ceremony: In addition to the 'book learning,' there is much energy and magic that occurs outside of our conscious awareness as we individually and collectively call forth Divine guidance throughout the month. It is my hope that all participants in the academy treat each class as a 'sacred ceremony' for both your own growth and the spiritual growth of others in the course.
6) Commitment to Attend:
I ask each accelerated participant to take responsibility to attend each class 'live' and to create a sacred space for yourself and others. It is completely understandable if you must miss a class or two, unexpected life events happen to all of us. I do ask that if you are not able to make a particular class time, you inform me as soon as you know. For foundational participants, live attendance is less of an issue and if you need to miss a class, that's fine, and in fact many past participants have chosen to take the course entirely by listening to the recordings that are issued each week and reported positive results.
7) If you live in Europe time zone: Because the time is so late in the middle of the night, many past participants have chosen to take the course entirely by listening to the recordings that are issued each week. Many have reported that they benefitted greatly from taking the course this way.
By submitting the registration form, along with your payment, you agree to the terms and conditions contained in this document.
Thank you very much for your interest in the academy!
I am very much looking forward to your participation in the course! :)
