If you forget your username or password, we will only take such steps that we regard as being secure to ensure that you regain access to your profile.

    12. Professional Development Facilitator: FLOW reserves the right to substitute event facilitators and education partners in the unlikely event that the facilitators listed cannot conduct the program. Substitution of event facilitators is not a cause for refund.

    6. Promo codes/coupons: If you have been provided with a promo code/coupon and you would like to make use of it when you register for a Program, you will have to indicate this on the relevant website payment page (where indicated), and agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of such promo code. Should you register without utilizing the promo code, the promo code/coupon will become redundant and you will not be entitled to receive the benefit of the promo code/coupon, including a refund of any part of the Program fee, once payment has been received by us. Promo codes/coupons are non-transferable and non-refundable.
    7. Suspension for non-payment: If you or your sponsor fail to make payment for a Program by the due date for payment (based on your selected payment option), then we may, in our sole discretion, remove you from the Program or suspend your participation in the Program. If you are suspended from participation, you will not be permitted to access the applicable learning portal until such time as we have received the outstanding payment. The party responsible for payment of the invoice will be given written notice to rectify non-payment within 7 days and if payment is not made within the 7 days’ notice period, then we may cancel your registration and remove you from the Program and you will not be entitled to any refund.

No refund is due to you if you request it after the 30-day guarantee time limit has passed. However, if a course you previously purchased is disabled for legal or policy reasons, you are entitled to a refund beyond this 30-day limit. FLOW also reserves the right to refund participants beyond the 30-day limit in cases of suspected or confirmed account fraud.

Refund credits may expire if not used within the specified period, and have no cash value, in each case unless otherwise required by applicable law.
    3. At our discretion, if we believe you are abusing our refund policy, such as if you’ve consumed a significant portion of a course that you want to refund or if you’ve previously refunded a course, we reserve the right to deny your refund, ban your account, and/or restrict all future use of the Services. If we ban your account or disable your access to a course due to your violation of these Terms you will not be eligible to receive a refund.

“Leadership is about facilitating co-creation. To do this leaders must connect (to self and others), remain curious (suspend judgement) and leverage differences (collaborate)”.

An introduction to an embodied mindfulness approach, focusing on gentle movement-based breathwork, centring and grounding practices.

This session provides practical tools to support the down-regulation of the stress response and lays the foundation for developing a mindful and embodied self-awareness.

Contemporary neuroscience confirms what ancient wisdom traditions have long known – that we have three intelligence centres or ‘brains’: the head (cephalic) brain, the heart (cardiac) brain and the gut (enteric) brain.

Our ability to balance these three brains or three ways of ‘knowing’ (through cognitive thought, creativity, feeling and intuition) is key in times of transformational change.
This session is an embodied meditation that guides participants to tune into, activate and balance these ‘three brains’.

The Master Leaders program is designed to facilitate that journey.”
This session will explore some of the many definitions of mindfulness, followed by a guided mindfulness meditation practice.

Why Mindfulness is not enough.

Let’s explore why, and the vital role of self-compassion and its development alongside a mindfulness practice.

The 5 senses are our portals through the body to presence.

This session includes a guided meditation practice, Coming to our Senses, inspired by modern mindfulness pioneer Jon-Kabat-Zinn.

Join us for a session of mindful poetry, experiencing how poetry can be a gateway into the present moment.
This session will introduce the body of work that is Somatics, and include a neck and shoulder tension release practice from Clinical Somatics.
This session will investigate the language that points to Presence, and will include a guided meditation practice.
In this session, we will enquire into the Present Moment, and experience why Eckhart Tolle, well-known teacher of secular spirituality, calls it the “Power of Now”.

The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek – Joseph Campbell

An embodied mindfulness practice that assists us in connecting to and staying present with what is alive or present within us, and balancing that awareness with our perception of our external environment.

It is a balancing of interoception (feeling from the inside out) and exteroception (awareness from the outside in).

We practice this balancing in the session so that we are more easily able to stay present to ourselves, and to what is happening within our heads, hearts and guts when faced with challenging circumstances in our work and home lives.

“Culture can only function if we live out the unwanted elements symbolically. All healthy societies have a rich ceremonial life. Less healthy ones rely on unconscious expressions: war, violence, psychosomatic illness, neurotic suffering, and accidents are very low-grade ways of living out the shadow. Ceremony and ritual are a far more intelligent means of accomplishing the same thing.” ― Robert A. Johnson, Owning Your Own Shadow: Understanding the Dark Side of the Psyche

Life doesn’t get easier or more forgiving; We get stronger and more resilient.
(Steve Maraboli)

A somatic activation that facilitates personal self-enquiry and intention setting.
It asks the following questions –

To be the fullest version of yourself:

a) what can you let go of or release?
b) in letting go of that, what have you made space for? What can you invite in?
c) What is the offer you can then make the world?

An exploration of archetypal body postures to activate particular states of readiness, focus and agility.

The session allows for self-enquiry around habitual responses and states in particularly high stress situations and provides the opportunity to begin practicing new responses.

In this session, the symbolic dimension of the sense of sight is explored as a portal for self-enquiry.

Through embodied explorations based on sight and focus, the session activates states that support the ability to zoom in to detail, and zoom out to big-picture thinking.

It also facilitates self-reflection around VISIONING.

An embodied exploration of the body systems of skeleton, joints, musculature and circulation as the basis for self-enquiry.

The metaphoric dimension of these systems is used as the portal for self-enquiry and investigation around the themes of structure and support (skeleton), agility (joints), mobility and vitality (musculature), and flow (circulation).
