I don’t appear to fall into any of the tuition categories, how much should I pay?
If your profession is not listed clearly in one of the tuition categories on the registration page, you should register using the second category for Allied Health Professionals.
I am a part-time/long-distance student – can I get the student rate?
The student rate is solely for full-time students. Those who register as students are required to fax a copy of their student ID to 202-966-2589 within two weeks of registering. Failure to do so will result in being charged the non-student rate.
Can I attend half / part of the program?
No. Because this is a training program, not a conference, we ask for a commitment from you to attend the entire training program, including all didactic and group sessions.
What does my tuition cover? Does the tuition include accommodations? How can I reduce my travel costs?
Tuition covers all lectures and small groups, digital Best of Stress Management Kit and and Dr. Gordon’s book “Unstuck: Your Guide to the Seven Stage Journey Out of Depression”. The tuition does not include accommodations. Visit our Hotel & Travel page
for information on our discounted room rate (book early to assure availability!) and to access our room and ride sharing site to help reduce costs.
I need a paper registration to give my employer for approval- what do I do?
Please register online with a minimum initial payment of $100. After completing registration you can print an invoice and have your institution send a check. Please make the check payable to: The Center for Mind-Body Medicine and send to: The Center for Mind-Body Medicine, 5225 Connecticut Ave, NW, Suite 414, Washington, DC 20015. We must receive your check prior to the deadline indicated on our Tuition page to avoid your card being charged the remaining balance. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
if there is a delay in obtaining a check.
Can I register over the phone/fax?
We encourage all attendees to register online in our online registration system – it only takes 5-10 minutes and is secure and user friendly. If you run into any troubles or cannot use the online registration due to disability please contact us at (202) 966-7338 x214.
Can I reserve a spot and register later? Will I be able to cancel if I register now?
We do not have a tentative registration process. You must register and pay a minimum of $100 by credit card to reserve a spot. Please check the Tuition page for our current cancellation policy and related deadlines.
I need a visa invitation. How should I proceed?
Upon registration and payment in full, please email email@example.com
to obtain your invitation letter.
We are interested in exhibiting. Whom should we contact?
Sorry, we don’t have any exhibitors at this program.
Can I purchase conference recordings since I can’t attend? Do you have online programs?
Unfortunately, because this training has such large experiential portion, none of it can be taken online or as a long-distance course at this time.
I teach yoga or qigong and would like to teach at Mind-Body Medicine. Whom do I contact?
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org
with your name, a description of your practice, and your CV. You will be contacted if we are in need of an additional teacher.
