MBSR 8-Week Online Program – Terms and Agreements
(program will be referred to below as MBSR 8-Week Program)
The MBSR 8-Week Program is an educational and experiential training in the methods of mindfulness, meditation, gentle yoga, walking meditation and other mindful movements. During this program I will be encouraged to practice these methods appropriate to my abilities and to never push beyond my capabilities. If I experience any pain or discomfort, I will listen to my body, discontinue the activity and ask for support from the teacher, Karen Sothers. I understand I am under no obligation to engage in these methods nor will I hold Karen Sothers, or any other MBSR instructor(s) liable for any injuries or harm incurred from these methods. I assume full responsibility for my experience in this program and for any harm which may incur from these methods during the group classes or on my own in-between group classes.
The MBSR 8-Week Program is not a substitute for medical care, examination, diagnosis or treatment or a substitute for psychotherapy. If I am under the care of a medical provider, psychiatrist, and/or psychotherapist, I have consulted with my physician and/or therapist about my ability to participate the MBSR 8-Week Program and I have received the appropriate approval from my health care providers.
I assume all risk for any physical and mental health consequences of participating in the MBSR 8-Week Program with Karen Sothers. In order to complete the payment process, I will be asked to check the box “I have read and agree to the website terms and conditions” which will serve as a complete and unconditional release of all liability to the greatest extent allowed by law in the State of California.
