All live sessions are facilitated using Zoom. Each week, you will receive an email reminding you of the session that day, which includes your Zoom link. The same Zoom link will stay active throughout the duration of the course. In addition to the weekly reminder email, it can also be found below.

Please note that all live sessions are in the United States “Eastern Time”, which is the time zone of New York City (where Embodied Philosophy is based) and the East Coast.

classroom expectations: 

In addition to the Course instructor, we have Learning Navigators to help facilitate a smooth learning experience. During a live learning session, please direct any tech questions to the Learning Navigator privately via the Zoom chat and they will assist you. This avoids disrupting the presenter or the other students with technical problems.

Please also make sure that when you enter the Zoom classroom that your audio is muted so that it doesn’t disrupt the recording process. You can ask questions for the presenter via chat — just make sure to ask the question to “everyone” so all the course participants can see the question.



Under this lesson, you’ll see the tab for “Course Discussions”. Here you will find information on how and when to use the Course Discussion as well as our Community Communications Agreement.


You’ve joined a course in our MindBody Studies  Track. If you’d like to socialize and connect with current EP students & others interested in this broad topic please join the conversation. Important: This is NOT a place for technical questions or course specific inquiries. Please see the information below on how to contact our support team.

After a live module is finished the video recording of the session and any supplemental material downloads will be uploaded to your course dashboard within 24 hours.


Out of respect for your instructor and fellow students, please DO NOT submit support requests via comments on the pages of this course, nor via the private Facebook group.

If you have any administrative questions or need technical support at any time, please go to embodiedphilosophy.com and look for the Support bubble, usually on the lower right-hand side of the screen. Click on it, and a small form will pop up, in which you can enter your name, email, and what you need help with. This is the best way to contact us, as we receive notifications as soon as that small form is submitted.  

Once again, thank you so much for joining us on this journey.

We look forward to learning with you.

In wisdom,

The Embodied Philosophy Team
