Frequently Asked Questions


What if we have to miss one of the dates?
All of the group meetings are recorded, including each week's 1-hr Q&A Office Hours session, will be recorded and posted to the private community space that's only accessible to your class cohort.
What level of group participation is necessary in the large group meetings?
Most of the 2-hour class meetings will be Keith's teaching about that week's concepts. You'll be asked to shut off your camera during exercise or discussion breaks to interact with your partner. There will be several opportunities each week for you to speak for your reaction to the concepts or exercises, or ask questions, in front of the group. Speaking for your experience can be a key to learning and everyone is encouraged to participate as much as possible. No one is ever put on the spot to share information about themselves they don't want to share with the rest of the group.
Do we have to be on the same computer/camera during the zoom meetings?
It's best if you're in same room as your partner and on-screen as much as possible. Of course if you are geographically separated, being on two separate cameras is no problem.
Do we have to keep our camera on during the meetings?
I'd like this group to resemble an in-person meeting as much as possible and it makes a HUGE difference to me as your teacher and to see each other's faces. Talk to me ahead of time if you have concerns about this. There will be times when I ask everyone to shut off their cameras and mute themselves so that you can complete an assignment or discussion with your partner. If you have to take care of a personal matter or tend to children during the meeting, it's no problem to turn off your camera, but otherwise I'd ask for everyone to participate and be a full part of the group, on camera.
Is participating in the Mindful Marriage Immersive online forum space necessary to take this course?
Participating in the private online forum that's exclusively for the participants of your live course is highly encouraged, but is not necessary, unless you want to access a replay of an class or Office Hours that you missed. Working through the concepts and exercises in this course can be REALLY challenging. I encourage you to use the private forum to get to know each other and learn from each other's wisdom and sharing about where you're getting stuck and where you're making strides. A central concept in the course is "speaking for your parts," and learning to separate your own feelings from your automatic assumptions (projections) about your partner. The form is NOT a place to voice frustrations with your partner or speak for your partner. I'll help make this distinction clear and offer guidance.
