General Payment Terms and Conditions

By submitting payment through the Luminous Awareness Institute (LAI) website, I authorize charges to my Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover card or through a debit card. I understand that I will be charged based on the payment choice I selected, for the program, product, or offering for which I am paying. A receipt will be emailed to me and the charge will appear on my credit card statement.

I understand that, unless otherwise detailed, my payment is non-refundable and agree to pay the charge I am submitting.

Recurring Payments

If I am setting up a recurring financed payment plan for any program or offering of the Luminous Awareness Institute, I agree to the following additional terms and conditions:

I authorize Luminous Awareness Institute to charge the credit card submitted through this payment form on a recurring basis each month or the payment cycle chosen. If the above noted payment dates fall on a weekend or holiday, I understand that the payments may be executed on the next business day. I understand that this authorization will remain in effect until I cancel it in writing, and I agree to notify the business in writing of any changes in my account information or termination of this authorization at least 15 days prior to the next billing date. This payment authorization is for the type of bill indicated on my payment form. I certify that I am an authorized user of this credit card and that I will not dispute the scheduled payments with my credit card company provided the transactions correspond to the terms indicated in this authorization form and any enrollment contracts I sign.

LAI 2-Year Program or Advanced Awakening Course Terms and Conditions

By submitting a tuition payment for the LAI 2-Year Program (as a new or returning student) or the Advanced Awakening course through this website, I am confirming my enrollment in the program or course and am agreeing to pay for the program in full, including the deposit and the payment choice I have made (one lump sum or 12 or 24 monthly financed payments) unless I withdraw by the drop deadline.

I understand that only one discount may be used, Early Bird or Decisive (available to new students only) per person in the 2-Year Program. Discounts are applied to my tuition as a whole, not to the deposit.

I understand that a full refund of my deposit or tuition payment will only be issued if LAI cancels the program or course or if I am not accepted after submitting my application. If I decide to drop or withdraw my application, refunds of my deposit will depend on the date I drop. In all cases, $300 of my deposit is non-refundable to cover administrative fees. I understand that after the deposit refund deadline, the entire deposit is non-refundable and I agree to these terms.

I understand that monthly financed payment plans require a credit card or automatic withdrawal and include a processing fee to manage the account. If payment in full is made in advance, a refund is available for students until a week after the first module, minus the deposit, tuition for the module, and any relevant room and board costs.  I agree that I am responsible for paying the full cost of the program or course once the posted drop date has passed, whether I am paying in one lump sum or have chosen a financing option.

I understand that Luminous holds the container of each class as sacred and does not enroll new students after the second module of the 2-Year program (or after the first retreat of the Advanced Awakening course).

No refunds for the program or course will be issued after the drop deadline has passed for any reason, and payment for the full program is expected. I agree to this both in the student contract and by submitting my payment here.

Full details of financial agreements will be provided upon acceptance to the program.

NOTE: Terms and conditions are subject to change.
