Time Requirements:
Each week there is about 5 hours+ of online video/audio to listen to, along with a chapter to read, a two hour live class and various studying/memorizing. Students should plan to devote at least 10 hours a week to this course. Some who are new to Sanskrit words may require more time.

In-person (Live) Class:
Live classes are on zoom 6-8pm at Pacific Time zone. The live class is not required to complete the course. Students may arrange a practicum time for their time zone to complete the interactive requirements of the practicum. Most students find the live classes highly beneficial. In the past, students from Australia, Russia, South Africa, South America, etc have joined from various time zones throughout the world.

Memorization:
The first 7 chapters have a lot of memorization to create a strong foundation as we move through the later chapters. If you sign up for the course before it begins, we ask that you focus on the material from the first 7 chapters, as this is where much of the new concepts and terminology is presented which requires memorization.

Teaching Assistants:
If you need further assistance when working through the course materials, Freedom has 3-4 Teacher Assistants he can connect you with. It is required before you reach out for a T.A., to make sure you have read the chapter and listened to the audio.

Social Media Interaction:
There is a Private Facebook Group for each of the Science of Light courses. This is a part of creating a supportive community environment and cultivating familiarity amongst the students. This is also a place to share any questions, comments, or insights as you work through the chapters each week. There are previous graduates and Teacher Assistants in the FB group that will help answer your questions. This page is also where any updates will be posted about the class (Zoom link, date changes, etc.)

Consultations during the Course:
For students to not mix the student/teacher relationship with client/practitioner relationship, Freedom will not provide readings to students during the course time. You are welcome to schedule a consultation with Freedom once you have completed the course.
