Description of Services
Grow Your Knowing provides personal and business mentoring via meditations, mediumship services and various other spiritually based means. We do this through:
- Live events (“Events”) that you and other individuals (“Members”) can attend in person;
- In-person or remote personal and business sessions (“Sessions”);
- Monthly subscription based services for Members (“Subscription Services”);

- Blog posts on our Websites (“Blog Posts”); and
- Social media channels through which we communicate with Members and host conversations between Members (“Social Media”).
We call all of the above (Events, Sessions, Webinars, Broadcasts, Websites, Blog Posts and Social Media) the “Services,” and we take great pride in preparing and delivering them. Some Services are available to the public, and other Services are restricted to Members who purchase
Your Use of the Services

You may agree to these Terms and use the Services only if you are at least eighteen years old and can form a binding contract with us, and only in compliance with these Terms and all applicable laws. If you are the parent or legal guardian of an individual between the ages of 13 and 18, you may agree to these Terms and use of the Services on the your minor’s behalf. If you are under the age of 13, you may not use the Services. Wherever the Services asks you to provide information, you must provide accurate information.
We may invite you to post information, questions or comments or upload content (we call all of these “Member Submissions”) in Social Media or in other ways. We do not guarantee that we or any other person will keep Member Submissions confidential. You represent and warrant that you own or have the necessary licenses and permissions to make any Member Submissions.
You agree that in connection with your use of the Services you will not, as we determine in our sole judgment:

Our Provision of the Services
We reserve the rights to monitor your use of the Services to determine compliance with these Terms. We reserve the right to deny the use of the Services to any person who we believe in our sole discretion to be in violation of these Terms, and this includes the right to ask people to leave Events or Sessions or exclude people from Social Media.
We reserve the right to suspend or terminate the Services to any person for any lawful reason at any time.
We neither endorse nor assume liability for Members’ conduct. We generally do not pre-screen, monitor, or edit Member Submissions. We do, however, reserve the right in our sole discretion to remove any Member Submission or other content that, in our sole judgment, does not comply with these Terms or which we otherwise find objectionable. You consent to such removal and waive any claim against us arising out of such removal of any Member Submission.
Events and Sessions
You may register for Events and Sessions through our website. Unless a particular Event or Session page or advertisement says otherwise, your registration for an Event or Session is non-transferable.
We charge you a recurring monthly fee (“Monthly Fee”) for participation in our Subscription Services. We will charge that fee on or about the day you sign up for our Subscription Services and then again or about the first day of each month. We reserve the right to change the timing of our billing. The Monthly Fee will be billed on the beginning of the paying portion of your membership and each month or year thereafter unless and until you cancel your membership. If your paying membership began on a day not contained in a given month, we may bill you on a day in the applicable month or another day that we deem appropriate.
We may adjust pricing for Subscription Services, or any of its components, in any manner and at any time as we may determine in our sole discretion. Except as otherwise expressly provided for in these Terms, any price changes to your Subscription Service membership will take effect following email notice to you. You consent to our charging you adjusted prices after providing you with email notice of our intent to adjust them.
You may cancel your membership to our Subscription Services at any time for any reason or for no reason. To do so, please contact us directly – click here –and request cancellation. Once you cancel your membership, you will continue to have the benefits of that membership for the duration of the then-current billing month, and then will lose those benefits, including your access to our online features.
For non-subscription based Services, such as the Lotus Membership or your purchase of Goods we sell, we will charge a one-time fee, which will be due prior to us providing those one-time Services to you.
Refunds for Events
Unless otherwise noted in connection with a particular Event, we offer refunds of Event fees if (a) you cancel your booking of an Event at least 48 hours before it begins or (b) we cancel an Event for which you have already registered and made payment. Otherwise, we cannot offer refunds of fees that you may pay for any of our Services.
Refunds for Sessions
Any Sessions you purchase from us (or receive via a gift card, as a gift, or otherwise) are non-refundable unless we are unable to provide our Services, either in person or remotely, during your scheduled Session time. For purposes of clarity, Sessions may be provided by us either in-person or remotely (via phone or teleconferencing software) and refunds will not be issued in the event a scheduled in-person Session is instead provided remotely, or vice-a-versa. If you can no longer attend a scheduled Session, you can reschedule with us for a future date and any payments you have made will be applied to that future Session so long as it occurs within one-year of your originally scheduled Session. Sessions needing to be rescheduled more than one-year from the originally schedule Session will incur additional fees.
If you violate any of these Terms or any other rules or policies that we may establish in connection with the Services, we reserve the right to terminate your participation in the Services immediately and without providing you any refund. You also agree to additional termination policies that we may establish in connection with particular Services.
The Services provide you with access to various materials that are subject to the protection of intellectual property laws (“Intellectual Property”). All Intellectual Property is the property of its respective owners, which may include us, and/or various third parties. Your use of the Services gives you no ownership rights and no licenses with respect to Intellectual Property except as provided herein.
You may print or download copies of any Intellectual Property for your own personal, non-commercial use and reference. You may not modify, copy, reproduce, record (via photograph, video, screen-capture or any other technology), resell or otherwise distribute any Intellectual Property to any person in any manner.

How we use information that you provide us
If you have any complaints or feedback about the Services, please contact us directly – click here.
These Terms will be governed by the laws of the Maine. Before taking any legal action against us, you will contact us in a good faith effort to resolve your dispute. If you do later take legal action, any such action will be resolved by binding arbitration conducted by a mutually agreed service in Maine. If we fail to reach agreement as to an arbitrator, either we or you may bring an action against the other in a court of competent jurisdiction in Maine.
The failure of either party to enforce any provisions of these Terms is not a waiver of the provisions or of the right of that party to subsequently enforce that provision or any other provision. Should any provision of these Terms be or become unenforceable under applicable law, the other provisions shall remain in effect.
These Terms inure to the benefit of the parties’ successors and assigns. You may not assign or delegate any rights or duties that these Terms impose on you.
These Terms constitute the entire agreement between us and you about the Services. They replace any other prior oral or written understandings or agreements between us and you about the Services.
