Can I talk to someone about my course before I start it?

It is usually possible to put you directly in touch with the tutor if a member of the CLMK staff cannot answer your query.

Important: If you need help with your online learning experience for a learning difficulty and/or disability (for example a hearing or sight impairment) please let CLMK and/or your tutor know as we may be able to offer you extra support or provide different learning materials.  This class involves periods of meditation with eyes closed so it is particularly important that your tutor is aware if you have a hearing impairment.

The content of this course may be adapted as research and theories change.
