The School of Natural Medicine’s approach is based on kindness, inclusiveness and personal connection. Positive interaction between the students, the school tutors and other students/graduates is of benefit to everyone and is a requirement. If a student has a concern regarding studies, classes, other students, or the teaching staff, they must direct those concerns to Farida Sharan directly, so that issues can be resolved peacefully and without having and unsettling affect on the group dynamic. Behavior that negatively impacts the group will be cause for a personal review and possible termination from the school. All communication regardless suggestions, complaints or cancellation of classes must be done by telephone or in person at the school. An initial contact can be made by email, but further communication regarding agreements and resolutions will be done in person.

The School of Natural Medicine is founded on quality personal evolutionary Self Healing training achievements of high levels of Social Intelligence. When each student enrolls, they agree to the following standards of conduct so that classes are conducted in respectful, safe, harmonious and supportive groups, with each participant contributing their full attention and agreement to responsible co-creation:

1. Deposits are made in a respectful timely manner for all classes with full commitment that shows respect and consideration for the teachers, the students and the school. If a student is unsure about attending, do notenroll until you are sure. Enrollment is commitment and deposits are not refundable. With emergencies, and respectful personal communication, the Director may choose to transfer deposits to a future class.

2. Cancellation of classes must be made in person, by telephone, no later than one week before classes begin, and only in emergency situations. Cancellations on the day or later than the week are not acceptable, and may be cause for suspension or dismissal. If the school cannot count on a student’s commitment, there can be no respectful relationship. A professional does not wake up one day and decide not to see their clients or teach a class because of a personal reason. Commitment is an essential to professional training and students agree to respect this at all times. Just as students need to trust teachers, the teachers need to trust the students.

3. All suggestions, complaints, difficulties, request, reactions and challenges must be in person, by telephone or visit with the Director or teacher. Other students come to classes to learn and experience their self healing process, not to process other students. Each student is responsible for mature, respectful conduct and communication based on the Social Intelligence model. If the school telephone hours 9am – 12 noon weekdays present a problem, arrangements can be made by email for the student to phone at another time.

4. All communications, attendances, payments and completed work is considered training for professional levels of behavior, respect and skill. It is through the courageous giving and receiving of honesty and respect that creates the supportive quality of our healing field and the loving care that flows through the classes.

5. Class starts at 3 pm Friday and 1 pm Saturday and Sunday, with some adjusted timings for Herbal Medicine, and all students are expected to arrive just prior to start time to complete enrollment and payments. Just as you would wish your students and clients in the future to respectfully plan ahead and arrive on time, the school conduct requires that each student arrive on time, in training for their professional life.

6. The School of Natural Medicine’s approach is based on kindness, inclusiveness and personal connection. Positive interaction between the students, the school tutors and other students/graduates is of benefit to everyone and is a requirement that each student consider this in all personal conversations. This is training for your future relationships with clients and students. The question to always ask is: Is this what I would want a client or student to act when I am a teacher or practitioner?

7. If a student has a concern regarding studies, classes, other students, or the teaching staff, they must direct those concerns directly to Farida Sharan or other teachers, so that issues can be resolved respectfully with kindness, attention and discussion without having an unsettling affect on the group. Complaining to other students causes negative energy to build in a group that affects other students who do not wish to participate in complaining and the teachers who are focused on presenting and will not be tolerated. Disturbing group harmony is cause for suspension or dismissal, pending review. An initial contact can be made by email, but it will not be answered in email, only with a personal conversation or visit.

8. The school is vegetarian and all food brought into the school for snacks, and lunches must NOT include any meat fish or eggs or anything that contains them.

9. Absolutely no mind-altering substances, whether alcohol, marijuana, or other drugs may be brought into the school, or imbibed before or after class, with full respect for the law. Any student in this school needs to be alert, mindful and completely present to make full use of all that is offered. Disrespect of this regulation is terms for suspension or dismissal.
