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 and engage with the writing exercises is approximately 8 hours
Do I get a completion certificate?
Yes. At the end of our hibernation you will get an 8 hour CPD certificate.
Do you offer refunds?
If you purchase a place on the course but need to cancel before the 1st December 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 those dates or at those times, 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.
How big will the groups be for the live sessions?
We don't anticipate huge numbers of people signing up, but in either case when we meet online we will break into small groups of 3 or 4 people for most of the activities.
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 and time to complete the worksheets before our community circles. However, if you do not have time for this then it will be fine to just engage with the circles and then go through the rest of the material in your own time. 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.
