The Scholars Program is a great place to get started with Straightness Training and to take the first steps on your personal path to mastery. It helps you to explore the world of Straightness Training and self-mastery. It helps you to intellectually understand what needs to happen, why, and how, which gives you cognitive mastery. 

Also, it's a great place to take things a step further. It helps you to experience the world of Straightness Training and self-mastery from the inside out. It helps you to practically experiment with what needs to happen, which gives you emotional mastery.

Plus, it's a great place to get your work to the next level. It helps you to excel in the world of Straightness Training and self-mastery. It helps you to become unconscious competent in with what needs to happen, which gives you physical mastery. 

ST Academy Scholars is a monthly membership program. 

Your subscription begins on the date you sign up and lasts 30 days.

You will have access to the Scholars Library immediately upon signing up and will get access to a brand new Live Class Module and new Mastery lessons when the new month begins.

The cost per month is automatically charged to your card.

See also our Terms & Conditions:

http://straightnesstraining.com/terms-conditions/ 

Your Scholars membership will continue month-to-month unless and until you cancel your membership.

After you cancel your subscription, you will loose access to all your content at the end of your billing cycle (not the end of the month). 

If you continue with the Scholarship you will keep access to the Scholars Library, plus the new Live Class Modules for the subsequent months.

This is the case for as long as you are a member, but when you leave the membership your access to all of the materials on the website is revoked.

After you have completed six months in Scholars, you achieve VIP status and receive additional resources, training and privileges.

After completing one year as a Scholar, you have pursued many interests as a true Renaissance Scholar and will have felt your life transformation. You achieve VINCI status and as a da VINCI Scholar you'll join special self-mastery classes.

As a Scholar, you get access to the Mastery Program - also called STclopedia - and to avoid overwhelm, we will serve it in bite-sized chunks in the form of monthly Mastery Lectures so you know exactly where to start and what to do next.

Many people become overwhelmed upon receiving access to all Modules of the ST Encyclopedia at once, so this is how it works:

  1. The STclopedia is broken down into 12 Mastery Modules with Lessons with supporting video content and complementary manuals on how to do groundwork, longeing, work in hand, riding, and Straightness Training at Liberty.
  2. Every month you get access to another set of Mastery Lessons that will help you to fast-track your growth, achieve extraordinary results, and ultimately, save you years of time-consuming trial and error.
  3. You get all Mastery Modules unlocked on the first day of the month.
  4. Then, at the beginning of every month in Scholars a new set of Mastery Lessons are unlocked and added to your ST library. 
  5. After two years in the Scholars program, you will have access to the entire library of the STclopedia with all its modules and lessons. 

This way, you don't get overwhelmed by all the modules, sections, lessons, videos, and manuals in the STclopedia and you never get the feeling of "getting behind". 

In the ST Academy Scholars Program,  the decision was made to stagger the release of the Modules, so that people keep up, and don't get lost along the way.

Marijke has selected the order in which to release the Mastery Modules and Lessons, so as to provide the most logical and structured way to work through the materials. 

You can change your credit card in the 'Settings' menu in your library. 

Here's what to do:

1. Log in to your Scholars Library as normal.

2. Click on the Avatar in the top right-hand corner of the screen and select 'Settings' from the dropdown menu that appears.

3. On the page that opens click on 'Billing info' in the top right-hand corner of the screen.

4. When the page opens click 'Replace' next to your current card details. 

2. Cancellation

Click a question below to reveal the answer.

You can cancel at any time but keep an eye on your billing cycle if you don't want to continue next month.

To cancel your membership, simply contact [email protected] at least fourteen (14) days before your next scheduled payment is due.

The ST Academy Scholar Program has been created for students that really want to achieve life-changing results for themselves and their horses.

It requires a dedicated involvement in the ST Academy, and a buildup of a relationship between student and teachers.

Therefore we are not facilitating a 'hop-on hop-off' service, because this would jeopardize the goals and vision of the ST Academy.

Also, it would very much complicate our administration.

Therefore, we have a policy that a waiting period of one year comes into effect the moment you cancel.

This means, you can sign up again in the future, however, you will not be able to sign up again for one full year after cancelling.

When you rejoin after one year your specific content rights will be reset to starter level. This means, we will not have saved your individual progress over the previous period. After you cancel we will clear your account and your membership information for technical reasons.

So when you cancel, you will lose all rights you have build up, even when you were close to becoming a VIP or VINCI Scholar.

Pausing your ST Academy Scholar membership in the ST Academy is not possible.

Putting your membership on hold and reactivating is not possible, as it would enable a "hop-on hop-off" service, that's not how it works in Academies.

We don't make exceptions, as we get these requests a lot as many Scholars are dealing with difficulties of any kind, and it would not be do-able for us to give all these Scholars tailor-made pauses, and extensions, and so on.

Therefore, it's not possible to pause or to rejoin before a year is up, no matter what the circumstances.

If you decide to leave Scholars for a year, here's what you can do in the meantime:

ST Academy Scholars is a membership (like a gym membership), which means you have unlimited access as long as you are a member.

If you cancel, your membership is disabled at the end of your billing cycle, and you will no longer be able to log in to the membership site.

As an accommodation to you, you may download eBooks and pdfs during your membership. Once you download an item, it is your responsibility not to lose, destroy, or damage it, and you may want to back it up.

You will have full access to the site, group classes, and all online materials until the end of your billing cycle.

After you cancel your subscription, you will loose access to all your content at the end of the current billing cycle (not the end of the month).

Your can view your canceled subscription and access end date in your Billing Information.

 

Your initial membership payment (1 euro or 267 euro) for the first month is non-refundable once you access the membership site.

Once this payment is processed, your subscription membership begins.

The membership payment is automatically processed each month thereafter until the membership is canceled.

To cancel your membership at any time, see FAQ 2.1. and 2.2.

  • Some course materials are in PDF format and require Adobe Reader to view. To download Adobe Reader go here: http://get.adobe.com/reader/ 
  • Be sure you are downloading the most recent, FREE non-beta Adobe Reader version available.

General things to try:

1. All videos and downloads have been tested by us using a variety of browsers, over PC and Mac and they work across those browsers and platforms.

2. The video and audio information can be quite large. You need to have a broadband connection (anything other than a modem) and a computer that is less than 3 years old.

3. These files will probably not work if you are on a 56k modem connection, and even when using DSL many files can take a significant amount of time to load/play.

4. Be patient. Some files can take up to 45 minutes to stream.

5. If you're still having audio/video problems and you're using a PC, do a hard boot by completely powering off your computer for a full 30 seconds and then turning it back on.

6. For any problems, the variables can be large so before contacting us, be sure to try it using a different browser, a different computer, or over a different network. Some browser or network security settings may prevent files from streaming.

7. If you are using Windows and you are getting a message that Quicktime could not initialize, Quicktime suggests that you go into the properties of Quicktime and either click or unclick the ‘compatibility’ icon.

1. Be patient. Some videos can take up to 45 minutes to process.

2. Try letting the recordings load (hit mute) and walk away and do something else for a while. You can then go back later and watch it after the recording has loaded into the buffer cache.

3. Make sure you have the latest non-beta version of whatever audio and visual software is recommended you’re using.
