4.0 The below terms and conditions will be sent on notification of a new assignment or event with the company/booking agent.

In the unfortunate circumstance that Still Calm finds it necessary to cancel an assignment/event due to illness or emergency situations, no charge will be invoiced.

If Still Calm is unable to fulfil an assignment or event due to adverse weather, travel conditions or strike action, Still Calm reserves the right to charge a percentage of the invoice amount dependent on individual assignment/event circumstances.

7.1. In the interests of health and safety for all students the following conditions apply to all training courses and workshops:
Still Calm courses are open meditation practice courses for the purpose of practicing mindfulness meditation related to stress reduction.  The courses and practices do not provide counselling or medical treatment and if you are, or believe you may be, suffering any physical or mental condition, please seek advice from you doctor prior to booking a course or workshop.

 7.4. Still Calm reserves the right to ask a student to leave the course (without recompense) if their behaviour is not conducive to a team environment.
 
8. On the day of training
8.1. It is the responsibility of each student to make sure that they know the route to the training venue and that they arrive in good time. Map and directions will be made readily available. Access is granted at all venues 30 minutes before the start of training. Students should try to arrive at the venue with at least 15 minutes to spare before the course begins. 
 
9. Late arrival
9.1. If due to unforeseen circumstances you find that you may be arriving late for a course then you should contact Louise on 07960674020 as soon as possible. You must make contact before the start time for the course. If you arrive any later than 60 minutes after the start time then you may not be able to participate with the course or workshop and a refund cannot be offered. If you are not able to participate on the day then the individual circumstances will be considered and you may be offered the opportunity to choose an alternative date for training. In this case it is likely that at least a part payment will be required. This is entirely at the discretion of Still Calm.
 
10. Permissible use of training and training materials
10.1. Still Calm offers training courses and workshops to students to provide them with the skills for living a mindful life and have the tools to manage stress. Our courses are not intended to permit students to deliver training themselves, therefore any and all course materials are intended only for reference purposes when during the course and for practicing in private after the course. Unauthorised copying, distribution or other use of training materials will be seen as a breach of copyright.
