    The course runs for four weeks. May 3 until May 24.

    You can follow along with us every week – either live or through replays, or you can have the option of self-paced study in your own time. The benefit of following us live is getting feedback and support and being able to ask questions from her and the others in the group.

    How much time do I need to spend on the course each week?

     Ideally, we recommend:

    Allow 15-30minutes to read your PDF
    Allow 20 minutes – 2 hours to make a remedy each week (depending on what you choose to make, this could be quick or more in-depth)
    1 hour to watch and participate in the zoom calls

    With this recommendation, we also know that life is busy, so just honour yourself and your time as needed. You’ve spent money on the course, so take time to connect with your intention and reason for joining us. This might help you prioritise the space for these 6 weeks to dive deeply into learning about these plants. But as always, take time of yourself – you know your own life and capacity best.

    I can't make some of the dates or times for the live course - can I still do it?

    If you can’t make the live calls you can still do the course as you will still receive the PDF’s, the Kit and the recording of the live calls.

    You can also email Cat with questions and Heidi and I can answer, either via email or in the live calls. You will also have access to the Facebook group so you can share your questions and experiences with your other people on your course.

    What if I change my mind?

    • your kit has been shipped out to you.

    It depends on the age of your child. If they are over 12 years old and open to talk of energetics then they can participate on their own. If they are under 12 you may want to do the course with your child or assist them where you feel it is needed.
