Session Scheduling
Session scheduling must be confirmed on the day it is proposed. Failing to confirm proposed scheduling may result in cancellation and refund. (See below for details.) Bundled PHILO℠ sessions are scheduled over three consecutive weeks, one per week on the same day of the week at the same hour, or more frequently if the client wishes, but in no case over a period longer than four weeks from the time of enrollment. SOPHIA℠ Solutions sessions are scheduled weekly for up to six months or until the issue is resolved, whichever comes first. LIFESTUDY℠ sessions are scheduled to take place over four consecutive weeks. Scheduling is not considered complete until it is confirmed by PhilosophyCenter. Note that no session can be scheduled prior to online enrollment.

Cancellation and Refunds
PHILO℠ Counseling: Single Session enrollment may be cancelled with refund no later than 24 hours prior to the start of the session. Cancelling a Bundle enrollment during the session nullifies any discounts or special pricing applied at the time of enrollment. The client will be charged at the standard Individual Session rate for calls completed up to the time of cancellation. Refunds are subject to a small administrative fee (see below).

SOPHIA℠ Solutions Consulting: Enrollment may be cancelled with refund no later than 24 hours prior to the start of the session. Once the session begins, no refunds are issued. While the client may terminate the service at any time during the session up to the limit of six months, no prorated portion of the fee can be refunded.

LIFESTUDY: LIFESTUDY enrollment may be cancelled with refund no later than 24 hours prior to the start of the session. Cancelling during the session forfeits any remaining classes on the schedule. Refunds are subject to a small administrative fee (see below).

LIFECOACH Training: Enrollment may be cancelled with refund no later than three business days prior to the start of the session. Once the session begins, no refunds are given.

PhilosophyCenter Store: All PhilosophyCenter Store titles are delivered immediately after checkout as digital downloads and are ineligible for refund.

PhilosophyCenter | Our Thanks   We’d like to acknowledge some outstanding individuals for their invaluable contributions to our work, most notably Dr. Jimi Millikan, gifted philosopher, advisor, and lifelong friend who taught us to practice philosophy not merely academically but as Socrates did, "in the marketplace." We also would like to express our deep appreciation for Dr. Tom Hanna, inspiring professor and somatics pioneer, who instilled in his students an abiding love for ancient Greek thought and its profound and enduring relevance. Dennis Hays, longtime friend, colleague, and talented philosophical life coach, has been and remains a uniquely valuable ally and resource. Finally, these acknowledgments must include a debt of gratitude to the immortal Socrates himself, declared by the Delphic Oracle to be the wisest of men in knowing that he knew nothing. If there ever has been a greater teacher in the history of Western culture, he has yet to be discovered.
