Guidelines for the Scientuitive Educator Beta Module

Effective September 2022

To ensure an optimal growth experience, please read these guidelines in their entirety. By being in the Scientuitive Educator (SED) Beta Module, you agree to abide by the following outlined guidelines. That means it’s your responsibility to read, understand, and follow these guidelines. Failure to comply with the guidelines will result in consequences detailed within this document.

Please note: all communication is subject to our terms and privacy policy

Purpose

We’ve chosen to host this SED Beta Module site from a desire to serve and support you in your learning journey throughout the 7 weeks. It is intended to create a safe and supportive space to learn, access materials and connect with your peers. The site will house resources such as recordings of live training calls, recording of the Q&A call, guidelines and other resources.

Personal Conduct

Be kind. Encourage and support each other. Treat everyone with acceptance. If you disagree or have an opposing viewpoint to share, first seek to understand the other person’s point of view, ask questions, and gather information before responding. When and if you do respond, do it with respect, honor, and from a place of compassion. Spirited debate about ideas or concepts is awesome, personal attacks are not.

As a general guideline, always remember to respond with intention. Connect with your body. Make it more than just an intellectual experience.

The SED Beta Module members are diverse, and we welcome and celebrate that diversity. While we understand and respect that some people want to engage in discussions around topics they feel passionately for like politics, gun control, religion, sex, disability, marriage, etc. — those topics are not the focus of this SED Beta Module. If we find a discussion or post is not serving the spirit of the group, or harmful to the group and/or individuals, we may take action (see Guideline Violations below).

Please note, we have a zero tolerance policy for harassment, hate speech of any kind, bullying, disrespect, drama or gossip. Violations of this guideline are taken seriously, and may result in action up to, and including, immediate removal from the SED Beta Module.

Respect & Empathy

These are the primary qualities to embody when participating in the SED Beta Module. This includes when listening to people’s questions or shares in our live Zoom training and Q&A calls, engaging in partner work offline and reading/posting comments on the SED Beta Module site.

Please remember that it’s NOT your job to fix anyone, or to try to make them feel better if they are having a tough time. It is our job to hold the intention that everyone has the capacity to increase their nervous system health and regulation. This applies to when we are in our live calls, as well as when you are in breakout groups during our live calls, as well as during your partner assignments that will take place outside of class time. We ask that you DO NOT provide peer-to-peer counselling, direct advice, or to sell services of any kind.

Please provide 100% Confidentiality, Respect, and Empathy to ALL participants involved.

Privacy

During the SED Beta Module you will be given access to contact emails of fellow students for partner work. We ask that you keep this information private and only communicate with your partner regarding the SED Beta Module assignments.

No Promotion Or Affiliate Links

Safety and containment are a big part of the SED Beta Module. This is not a place to find customers, or recruit people to other programs or groups. We ask that you refrain from any solicitation, referrals or other discussions that do not relate to the SED Beta Module material.

Forming and Sharing Subgroups or Other Pages

This is the only SED Beta Module site and commenting area. Any other related sites, pages, groups or forums that you may come across are not run by Scientuitive – Fitness & Wellness Education Inc., however we can recognize the value in forming small groups by location, vocation, personal interests etc.

Scientuitive – Fitness & Wellness Education Inc. is not responsible for the actions, behaviors, or practices of any individual or group. Use your good judgement and common sense if joining any other outside group. We hope it never happens, but if you ever experience behavior in a non-Team Lyon SED Beta Module-related group, where the actions of the group members and admins as a whole are in clear violation of the SED Beta Module terms including, but not limited to, copying content or infringing on intellectual property or behaving illegally or unethically, we encourage you to reach out to the authorities or report to Team Lyon as applicable. You can let us know at support@irenelyon.com with screenshots of any applicable violating behavior, and we may take action with individual SED Beta Module members.

Confidentiality

To support safety and containment, please remember anything shared and discussed around your peers’ personal history, their struggles and processes, is to be kept within our discussions here on the module site, in our Zoom training/Q&A calls, and within your offline partner interactions.

ALL conversations, communications and comments between members, Irene and Team Lyon, as well as any of Irene’s written words explaining concepts is to STAY IN THIS SED BETA MODULE, and remain confidential.

The ONLY TIME it is permitted to copy and paste a passage is when Irene, or Team Lyon, have explicitly given you permission to copy/share content/text around a particular video or article that is being shared for educational purposes.

A Few Tips

MY QUESTION DIDN’T GET A REPLY FROM IRENE

A few things to keep in mind when waiting for a reply from Irene:

  1. Please give it some time. It can take 48-72 hours for your question to be replied to.
  2. Ensure that you have started with ‘QUESTION Week #_’ at the beginning of your comment.
  3. If it has been more than 48-72 hours, feel free to post again.

MY COMMENT DISAPPEARED

Do a search but also feel free to post again. If your post isn’t appropriate (it violates our guidelines) or has started to cause problems, it might have been removed by Team Lyon. See “What Happens if You Don’t Follow The Guidelines” above. Comments may also be removed by the original poster on occasion.

I POSTED SOMETHING AND NOW I DON’T WANT TO BE A PART OF THE CONVERSATION ANYMORE

You’re absolutely free to delete any post or comment you make in the SED Beta Module site at any time.

These guidelines and tips may seem strict, but we want to provide an overview at the start of our time together so it is clear what the SED Beta Module is for, and what it is NOT for.

Once more, we are grateful for your commitment and investment in having Irene and Team Lyon be your guides as you bring foundational principles and practices, namely orienting, resourcing, following impulse, breath, and potent posture into your scope of practice.

Irene and Team Lyon.
