The course materials are available below to purchase and instantly download. The core teachings come first and the practice materials at each step appear below. The 15-steps is the most important part of the course. The Concise Model explains the principles and elements comprehensively. You may cherry-pick the other downloads as you need. It is always good to practise earlier steps even if you have progressed quite far along the course. Updates to materials happen occasionally and your links will give you lifetime access to these.
The legacy course is available HERE. It uses a more conventional, modular, prescriptive system, following a set scheme of work. Some people may prefer this approach but as I am no longer developing it, there will be no future updates.
