You & I - The Source of Everything was developed by leaders with over 25 years of experience participating in, designing, and leading a variety of seminars and programs, but You & I - The Source of Everything is not affiliated with Landmark or any other adult education company in any way whatsoever.
Is there ongoing training?
Yes. We provide materials and coaching for graduates who want to host and facilitate follow-up workshops. These workshops are designed specifically for graduates of You & I - The Source of Everything and require no special skills for facilitating them or participating in them. The only prerequiste to participating in these workshops is completing the You & I - The Source of Everything seminar. There is no charge for the workshop outlines or for participating in the workshops.
Do I need to bring anything with me?
Nothing for the course itself. We provide pens and notebooks. Only water is allowed in the room during the course and we provide bottled water at a nominal charge. If you would like to bring other beverages or food, we request that you eat at the breaks and only in designated areas.
Where do I eat?
There will be a 15-minute break half-way through each session and an area will be designated where you can eat snacks that you bring. If there are two sessions in one day, there will be a 90-minute break so that you can have enough time to go out and get something to eat.
Are there any Rabbis that approve of this?
The course was partially developed and is co-led by Rabbi Ilan D. Feldman, a prominent pulpit rabbi at Congregation Beth Jacob in Atlanta. Rabbi Feldman has specifically added material to this course to make it appropriate for observant Jews. A number of Rabbis have attended the seminar and reviewed it very favorably.
Do I need to attend all sessions?
We strongly reccomend you attend all sessions of the seminar. Although you may attend part of the course and get value, we cannot guarantee that you will achieve the promises of the program without attending all the sessions, participating in all the exercises and completing all the assignments. As in most endeavors in life, what you get out of the course will be directly proportional to your level of participation in the course.
Why do we have assignments?
The real value you get out of this course will arise from practical application of the tools and insights you recieve in the seminar out in your day-to-day life. Insights without action provide value that is fleeting at best. Real tangible results in areas of life that are important to you will require you to take action to apply what you learn.
Each assignment should take no more than 20-25 minutes to complete. Some of these assignments you will do on your own, and others you will do with a partner that you choose. There is always a bonus assignment after each session, which you may opt to take on or not.
Can I get a refund if I don't like it after one session?
You can get a full refund if you complete all four sessions and still feel that you did not get the results promised by the seminar. Simply talk to one of the leaders after the last session.
