FACULTY: Baharieh Rouhani Ma'ani, Susan Cangurel

Discounts are available for early registration and for senior citizens (age 65+), students, and pioneers. If you need a financial-aid discount, write us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Many are available.
The course will not be providing an electronic copy of the book, so you will need to purchase a copy. A Kindle copy can be purchased here; a paper copy, here.
You may join our online learning community either as an individual or as part of a study group (3 to 20 people). In either case, you can do all your work at home at any time of the day or night. We assign mentors to individuals and to groups to advise, encourage, assist, and answer questions. Groups are expected to meet every week or two for group discussions. Web-based forums connect all learners--individuals and members of a group--to the insights and perspectives of fellow students from all over the world.
To form a group, ask some friends whether they'd like to take the course with you. If at least one other agrees, go into the registration system, establish a group, and pay for it. Then email the confirmation number and its web link to the others, so they can click through and add themselves to the group. One person (or a Spiritual Assembly) pays for the group; the group members reimburse the payee based on whatever arrangement the group devises.
Note: All our courses are "asynchronous," which means there is no work that has to be done at a particular time. You can do everything at any time. For more information, go to http://wilmetteinstitute.org/ourcourses/frequently-asked-questions/.
Discounts are available for early registration and for senior citizens (age 65+), students, and pioneers. If you need a financial aid discount, write us at email@example.com. Plenty are available. Registration is limited to 40 people, so sign up today.
