Waiver: Historically, many spiritual traditions and teachers, since the invention of film, have either documented, recorded and then archived the teachings so they are available in the future as a resource for learning, either for private or public offering in the future. This training follows that tradition. Therefore, expect classes, lectures and events will either be filmed or audio recorded. Your attendance confirms you have read and understood this requirement for archiving these lessons. If you have personal reason to not be included in this subtle documentation, please let your teacher know at the time and you can be ensured to be out of sightline. Thank you.
