ONLINE PROGRAM RECOMMENDATIONS & REQUIREMENTS
Every participant of Sacred Art of Living Community’s online programs is required to have an adequate internet connection and appropriate equipment for a Zoom meeting/webinar. This allows for each participant to be seen and heard by their fellow participants as well as the Leadership Team during our highly interactive programs. It is not allowed to simply attend a workshop anonymously (i.e. with muted video and audio).
Participants are also required to be present in an appropriate, stationary space with access to audio and visual privacy as needed. Driving or riding in a vehicle during a program is unsuitable to the integrity of the workshop and the quality of your experience and the experience of your fellow participants.
Full participation in these workshops is required. This includes participation in the interactive breakout sessions and small group exercises that are part of each program.
We highly recommend, if at all possible, to join our online programs with a laptop or desktop computer to allow for optimal viewing and participation. A working camera and microphone are also essential. In our experience iPads, Tablets, and smartphones tend to greatly inhibit the overall experience for participants.
