Additional Details About the Course
How long is the course?
There are 20 2-hour classes, stretched over twelve to fourteen weeks (time off for holidays). We alternate between weeks with only one class, and weeks with two classes.
How many hours each week will I need to dedicate to the course?
This is a comprehensive and rigorous course, requiring six to eight hours of study and practice each week. Other than the fixed time of the classes, the rest of the study is scheduled at your own convenience. This includes reading, internal work, watching videos, etc., and the practice – exchanging sessions with other students.
What if I can’t attend some (or all) of the classes?
Recordings of each class (both video and audio) are posted the next day, so you can “attend” each class as if you were there. Some students (especially those in Asia and Australasia) attend all classes virtually, because of the time difference. We stay in close communication with all students, following their progress, so no one gets left behind.
How will my progress be tracked?
Each week, you’ll fill out a Weekly Report Form online, where you’ll share your experiences, questions, and progress. Our Assistant Coaches (graduates of the program) will monitor those reports closely, and bring any questions or problematic issues to Lion, and he will respond quickly. Lion is always available to students, and he is generous with his time. Many students have been surprised at the close attention they get in this course, because they haven’t ever seen such close and loving care from a teaching team.
Will I have to take notes?
No. We provide detailed notes after each class, including the main points of the lectures, details about homework, links to assignments, etc. So you can give your full attention to the class presentation. (You are, of course, welcome to take notes if you wish. Some students learn best by doing so.)
What are the requirement for graduation as a Certified Clear Beliefs Coach?
Because of the comprehensive nature of this training, the requirements are rigorous, yet easy to accomplish if you keep up with the assignments each week. Here are the minimum requirements for graduation:
- Read the entire Clear Beliefs Instruction Manual (270 pages)
- Attend all of the classes – either live, or by listening to the recordings.
- Practice weekly with your assigned partner. You actually practice twice — in one session, you are the Coach, practicing the skill or technique of the week. In the other, you are the Client, being guided through the experience of actually shifting your internal landscape, and changing your beliefs.
- Submit weekly Reports about your experiences, both as a coach and as a client.
- Stay in regular communication with your Mentor Coach, who tracks your progress and your level of skill with each technique.
- Complete a few particular assignments and reports.
- Take a Final Exam.
All of these requirement fit into the four to eight hours a week mentioned above.
Will I change, get better, solve my problems, or heal from my childhood wounds during the course?
We cannot promise anything like this, of course, because it depends on what you bring, and how rigorous you are with your practice. We CAN tell you, however, that most students experience a radical shift in their attitude, consciousness, abilities, and confidence at the end of the course. Check out the many testimonials from our graduates. You’ll hear numerous reports of significant shifts, radical transformation, and huge positive change in their attitude and their life. The reason is because you are encouraged to bring your life into the practice. You will have more than ten belief-change practice sessions during the course where you are the Client. The more you bring your real-life problems and issues into those sessions, the more can be transformed at the core. Miracles are possible!
What if I can’t carve out four to eight hours a week for 12+ weeks?
We have found that this amount of time is the minimum needed to complete the requirements and meet the standards of this training. Please don’t apply for the course if you know you can’t handle the required time, attention, and energy. If you’re not sure, feel free to make an appointment to speak with Lion to get clarity.

What if I can’t afford the course?
Lion offers three partial scholarships each class. If you are would like to apply, send an email to Lion (firstname.lastname@example.org) with an explanation of your circumstances, a description of your background and previous experience in inner work and belief change, and what you can afford (knowing that the training is valued at $2,300). The more you stretch, the more Lion will stretch to get you into the course. Lion offers special discounts to veterans and those who work for non-profit organizations.
What is your refund policy if the course is not for me?
Even with our rigorous screening process, sometimes a person discovers that the course is not a match for their growth and learning. During the first month of the course (the first six classes), if you choose to withdraw from the course, you will receive a complete refund, minus a $300 administrative fee. There are no refunds if you withdraw after the sixth class. However, in that case, you will have credit for any future course within one year (minus the $300 administrative fee).
