Logistical Details

Food

Light snacks will be provided, and lunch will be on your own with your fellow participants during sufficiently spacious lunch breaks. At times, you will have prompts to discuss with your fellow participants over lunch, so as much as possible plan not to schedule other things during your lunch breaks.

There are numerous food options within walking & driving distance. You may also bring your own snacks and/or lunch. There will be fridge space to store lunches during the day, as well as access to a microwave. Snacks during the course will all be vegetarian, with many vegan, gluten-free, and other options to suit specific diets.

Attire & Comfort

Please dress comfortably, with layers (temperatures can vary greatly from day to evening in Sacramento). You may bring pillows and whatever else you need for your comfort. We will be sitting for most of the days, with bio and movement breaks as needed. Our Support Team will be attending to whatever you need for your comfort and focus throughout the course (this could be anything from getting you water to going to the store to pick up something for your wellness). Please simply let us know how we can support you!

Fragrance-Free Space

To be respectful of participants with chemical sensitivities, please refrain from wearing scented body lotions, sprays, shampoo/conditioner, or other products (this applies particularly to artificial fragrances, as well as strong natural fragrances). Thank you for your assistance in contributing to an accessible course room!

Sobriety

We ask that you refrain from using alcohol or recreational drugs for the duration of this course. This does not include prescription medications you are taking. This course creates new ways for your brain to process information, and this would be disrupted by mind-altering substances.
