Frequently asked questions
Where will the course take place?
All of the group aspects for this course will take place online using Zoom, so you can attend no matter where you live. The aspects of the course that take place in nature are self-directed. We're inviting you to find areas of nature in your local area that can be part of your journey on this course. For some people this might be a garden or local park, for others it will be the sea, forest or other nearby countryside. If you go on holiday during our spring together you can take the course with you, exploring the nature in your new environment and dialling in for any live sessions.

What is the time commitment for this course?
As much of the course is self-directed the amount of time you dedicate to the material is largely up to you. However, the time commitment to attend the live sessions, complete some meditations each week and engage with the writing exercises is 2 hours per week
Do I get a completion certificate?
Yes. At the end of the season you will get a 26 hour CPD certificate.
Do you offer refunds?
If you purchase a place on the course but need to cancel before the 1st March when the course starts we will offer you a full refund. Refunds will not be available after that date.
What happens if I can't be free for all of the live sessions?
We all lead busy lives and it may be the case that you can't make all of the live sessions. The live sessions will not be recorded and there is no need to catch up with the material. However, if you miss a live session and want to be given some suggestions on how you might cover the topic area in a self-directed way then you can email us and we will send you some suggestions.
I can't attend on Thursday evenings will you be holding the live sessions on any other days of the week?
Unfortunately, no. We're going to stick with the schedule above for this Spring Feminist Way. If we feel that subsequent courses like this will have enough demand to hold two or three different live sessions a week we will consider that for future courses. If you'd like to talk with us about your whole team attending The Feminist Way and having their own series of online sessions then please get in touch [email protected]
How big will the groups be for the live sessions?
We're going to limit the size of the group to 45 people and break into much smaller groups for most of the live sessions.
Am I feminist enough?
Yes, you most definitely are. We are all on our own journey and we can support each other on that no matter where we are on the path. No one is going to be checking your feminist credentials at the door. This course is open to anyone who thinks it may be a good fit for them. We expect that we will have a wide range of people from those who have been deeply involved in feminism for years and those who are just starting on their journey. All are welcome.
Is this open to people of all genders?
Yes, The Feminist Way is open to people of all genders.
Do I need to do anything to prepare for the course?
If you would like to get the most out of the course it would be useful to give yourself time to go through the preparation material before the course starts. However, if you do not have time for this then it will be fine to just engage with the content as and when it is released on a weekly basis. If you feel that you are on a significant healing journey you may find the course below 'How do people heal from trauma?' a useful preparation for The Feminist Way.
