MONTHLY LESSONS

  • Your unique student identity allows you access to the monthly lessons area inside the online campus  
  • The lessons include written, video and recording materials
  • Students can study and review the monthly lesson as often as needed to fully explore the material – students have indicated that the on-line studies amount to about 15 hours each month, not including the harp practice and book reading
  • Each monthly lesson times out at the end of the month and a new lesson is posted
  • Don’t worry –  the previous months lesson remains available if needed

  • Conferences are at scheduled times to work with several regional time zones  
  • You will hear key-note addresses by leaders in the field and have the chance to question and get the advice you need when you need it
