We totally get this! We aim to provide some foundational knowledge through the online platform in course 1, to prepare folks before meeting in bodies together in course 2.
We provide weekly Community of Practice calls in a group conference call on the platform Zoom, where one of your faculty mentors will casually present a topic, and invite some group sharing. You can hear each other speak, share your thoughts, feelings, and questions, and start to get a sense of the bigger community. Also, embedded into the curriculum are videos of your mentors introducing the topics, as well as sharing their own experiences. We try to provide a little bit of everything for all the different types of learners, some reading, viewing, and listening, as well as a somatic inquiry at the end of each unit. You can submit your assignment in your own way! Maybe it’s written in words, or you can make a short video to describe your experience.
