Cancellation policy: We will refund your registration, minus a $25 administration fee, if you cancel 3 weeks before the course begins. IHE is unable to grant refunds for cancellations after that date, but you may make arrangements for someone else to take the course in your place.
Solutionary Groups: A Solutionary Group is 3 or more people taking the course simultaneously. Move through the course together, assist and support each other, and use the course as a way to bond as a group and work together in your community for positive change.
