Participation Agreement for Live Events, Webinar’s and Workshops

I, the Participant (the “Participant) of Heather R. Stone’s Event, Webinar, Masterclass and/or Workshop (the “Program) in-person or online (the “Venue”), hereby acknowledge that I have voluntarily chosen to participate in the Program.

In consideration of my participation in the Program, I represent, warrant and agree, as follows:

My attendance at the Program is for the sole and exclusive benefit of my own personal and professional development, and I affirm that I freely and voluntarily choose to participate in the Program. No promises or warranties of any benefits or particular results have been made to me or have influenced me to enter into this agreement or participate in this Program. I shall comply with all Program and Venue rules and regulations, and will conduct myself in a manner that will not disrupt the smooth functioning of the Program.

I am presently in good mental and physical health. I understand that the Program is not a substitute for professional treatments of any kind. I agree that I shall, at my own expense, obtain any appropriate medical treatment that may be necessary while I am attending the Program. If Heather R. Stone (“Leader”) or other staff assisting with the Program determine in their discretion that a medical emergency exists, I authorize them to obtain medical treatment for me at my expense.

I agree that the Program is an educational process and that maximum benefit is gained when participants freely and fully examine for themselves the ideas presented and evaluate these ideas in light of their understanding and experience.

I agree that the Leader offering the Program is an individual dedicated to benefiting the individual, society and the world through their Program related activities, and that all of their resources and energy devoted to these activities are used to fulfill these valuable purposes. I agree to take full responsibility for my participation in the Program and the results arising from such participation. I agree not to bring any legal actions against the Leader or any affiliated organizations (collectively, the “Parties”) for any negligent or non-intentional acts or omissions, and I release the Parties, their agents and employees from all such claims and damages, and for all breaches of express and implied warranties. Any of the Parties shall be entitled to enforce this provision of the Agreement by injunctive relief as well as be entitled to any other legal or equitable remedy.

I represent that everything that I have expressed in this Agreement is accurate and true, and I agree to compensate and indemnify the Parties for any loss or damages from my breach of any other provisions of this Agreement.

Mediation and Arbitration: Should any issue or claim arise between the Parties, both agree to seek in good faith to resolve such issue or claim through negotiation using, if necessary, the assistance of a mutually agreed upon third party mediator. If such negotiations are not successful, any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to this Agreement or any breach or default under this Agreement, shall, with respect to all claims pertaining to such controversy, claim, breach, or default (except any action for equitable relief with respect thereto), be settled by arbitration in New London, Connecticut, United States of America, on a confidential basis, in accordance with the then-prevailing rules of government in The United States of America. The arbitrator shall have the discretion to determine the appropriate scope and schedule of discovery. The arbitrator shall not contravene or vary in any respect any of the terms or provisions of this Agreement. The award of the arbitrator shall be final and binding upon the parties hereto, and judgment upon any award rendered therein may be entered and enforced in any court of competent jurisdiction. Neither this arbitration provision nor a pending arbitration shall prevent a party from seeking or obtaining injunctive relief or any matter at any time.

I agree that this Agreement can only be changed by a written modification signed by both parties. If any provision of this Agreement is found to be invalid, this shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions. I hereby agree that I may not assign my rights and obligations under this Agreement to any party.

I have read and understand everything in this Agreement.
