Dear Friends of AWB,

We understand there is a lot of concern around the COVID-19 outbreak and we want to update you as to how we are responding.

At this time, AWB has NOT cancelled any trainings due to the outbreak. We are staying in contact with all of our host schools and keeping up to date on recommendations from public health officials. As you know, this is a very fluid situation and things are changing daily. If we do have to cancel or reschedule any trainings, we will announce it on our website, social media and via email to any one that is registered. Credit will be offered for any future trainings.

Should you need to cancel a Healing Community Trauma or Alternatives to Opioids training, our refund policy will remain the same:

  • 75% refunded if cancelled more than 2 weeks prior to the first day of the selected training.
  • 25% refunded if registration is cancelled up to 1 week prior to the first day of the selected training.
  • NO refunds will be made for cancellation less than a week prior to the first day of the selected training, although there will be credit granted for a future training if it is within one calendar year.

For refund policies for our certificate program, please visit our website here.

If you are interested in learning more about coronavirus and TCM, please see the upcoming Mayway course, Coronavirus: Modern Research for TCM  listed at the bottom of this email.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this challenging time. We are committed to the heath and safety of our community and these will be in the forefront of any decisions we make.

This is also a great time to remember all our stress and trauma relief techniques. Let’s help ourselves and our communities shift from the unnecessary panic that could freeze us to the healthy awareness that will sustain us. 

In Health,

The AWB Team
