Group Terms and Policies

**THIS ISN'T JUST LEGAL MUMBO JUMBO. ACTUALLY TAKE A FEW MINUTES TO READ IT. YOU'LL NEED TO KNOW THIS INFO BEFORE WE START.**

Howdy and welcome to life’s greatest adventure! 

Before we have our session/call, there are a few things for you to go over and confirm. Our time/work together will be referred to here as the "relationship." This page will explain what to expect in the relationship, what will be expected of you in the relationship and the terms of the relationship.

Please review and confirm everything before scheduling your session. If you have any questions, you can reach out to me at [email protected]

 

This Agreement is entered into by and between Jace Downey Enterprises, LLC (hereinafter referred to as “I” or “Jace”) and you (hereinafter referred to as “you” or “Client”).

 


What to expect from me and this relationship:

This is a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires you to maximize personal potential.

Often this requires experimenting with new ideas, stepping out of comfort zones that have become obstacles to growth, or dropping old beliefs, attitudes and assumptions that no longer serve you and your vision. Our sessions 
may include value clarification, brainstorming, identifying plans of action, examining modes of operation in life, asking clarifying questions, and making empowering requests or suggestions for action. Additionally, you may be asked to reflect on difficult topics or situations which may result in an expression of emotions.

During the session, I will devote my time, thoughts, and energy to you as part of the group. I will bring attentive listening, understanding, belief in you and commitment to your success. You can expect me to challenge you, offer fresh perspectives, make requests (including assigning fieldwork), acknowledge your wins, and guarantee utmost confidentiality (to the fullest extent of the law, and so long as I don't fear for your or another's safety) in the powerful, sacred relationship. I won’t act as a mentor, teacher or consultant. Instead, serving as a facilitator of you identifying what you want to create for yourself and your life. Skilled in using powerful questioning and listening techniques as well as strong intuition, I will be more like a collaborator in your achieving success. 

 

 

What will be expected of you in the relationship:

 

Throughout the working relationship, I will engage in direct and personal conversations with you as part of a group. You understand that this process requires a co-active collaborative approach between the two of us and the group. During our session, I will play the role of a facilitator of change, but it is your responsibility to enact or bring about the change. I cannot guarantee results. You will create powerful results by having the courage and determination to forward the action in your life.

You acknowledge this is a comprehensive process that may involve different areas of your life, including work, finances, health, relationships, education, spirituality and recreation. Deciding how to handle these issues, incorporate the discussed principles into those areas and implementing choices is exclusively your responsibility. 

I will share information, resources and fieldwork to support the work you are doing. This is intended to help you keep focused and moving forward. You will be expected to take action with anything that feels true for you.

 

You agree to honor the scheduled session times and the other members of the group. Arrive on time, plan to stay for the entire call and always respect the experience and confidentiality of others in the group.


If during our session I do or say anything that upsets you or doesn't feel right, please bring it to my attention so that it can be resolved as soon as possible. The objective is to have a relationship that is fully open, honest, real and trusting in our communication styles. You understand that in order to enhance the relationship, you must agree to communicate honestly, be open to feedback and assistance and to create the time and energy to participate fully in the program.

 

Terms of relationship:

Contributions can also be made on a monthly basis.

All contributions go through PayPal’s secure system and can be made on a one-time or reoccurring basis.


2. 
Termination: If during the session you feel it is not of value to you, you may terminate the session at any time. Please be prepared and open to share your feedback about the session and what didn’t work for you so that I may continue to improve the value I provide.

4. Technology: It is important to be aware of the use of technology in that for some people, there is a risk in using certain media such as the internet, mobile phones and cordless phones. If you use these to communicate with me, then I will assume that it is appropriate to continue to do so in my interactions with you. Additional resources may be shared by mail, e-mail and phone throughout the relationship. I cannot be responsible for any technology/connection issues that may arise. Should a session be delayed or interrupted due to issues with technology/connection on my end, efforts will be made to reschedule the lost time.
