In the LIONS Orientation Pack, you will find some important documents that will help guide our work together over the upcoming 12 months.
We understand that your life is very busy and hectic, and that paperwork can often seem tedious–but please pay close attention to the information in these documents because they establish essential guidelines surrounding our working relationship in the LIONS program.
Here are the documents you will need to read, fill out, and return to your coach no later than 72 business hours before our first session:
We will retain all your records for six months after you’ve completed the LIONS program. After six months, we will delete all of your records, including your membership details. If you’d like to retain the records of your work in the LIONS program, we highly recommend that you download your program materials before that time. After that time, we can still provide you with a full-program PDF, but this will be a generic form not adapted to your personal experience in the program.
Session Cancellation Policy
If you need to reschedule or cancel your session, you must give a minimum of 48 business hours’ notice. You can only reschedule a session once within a single stage of the program.
If you are unable to give 48 hours’ notice before cancelling a session, you will forfeit that time. However, you can still reschedule a virtual two-hour session that covers the core material in that stage. This rescheduled session will not contain the unique exercises and experiences incorporated in the full-day session, but it will keep you on track with your learning for the 12-stage program.
Please download the Neuroscience Tools in preparation for our first session. You do not need to read the tools in advance of our session, but you will need them on hand as we will reference them regularly over the course of the program.
Before the program begins, you will pre-book the dates for, at minimum, your first three sessions of the LIONS Program.
A man sits in an orchard, fruit trees full and the vines plump. He has his head on his knee; his eyes are closed.
His friend says, “Why stay sunk in mystical meditation when the world is like this? Such visible grace.”
He replies, “The outer is an elaboration of the inner. I prefer the origin.”
Natural beauty is a tree limb reflected in the water of a creek, quivering there, not there. The growing that moves in the soul is more real than tree limbs and reflections.
We laugh and feel happy or sad over all this.
Try instead to get a scent of the true orchard. Taste the vineyard within the vineyard.
by Rumi, 13th-century poet
