Independent Study Program

Study Independently and maximize the flexibility of your Ayurvedic Postpartum Caregiver (APC) Program.

For students who prefer more flexibility and time in completing their Ayurvedic Postpartum Caregiver Diploma, we offer an Independent Study option.  The program follows the same 5 Module Curriculum as the Cohort Program. Visit the Cohort Program Page for information about the Curriculum.  Students may work at their own pace and have up to 12 months to complete the Program.  

Student Website.  Students will follow the program using a Student Website containing everything they need to know about the program, including a page for each section of study.  These course pages will include all required reading and practicum assignments, course notes, video lectures, journal reflections and any other course materials.  

One on One Mentoring.  In place of the live instruction classes, the Independent Study students will have regularly scheduled meetings with their mentor who will guide them through their program.  Mentor meetings may take place via phone or video conferencing and can be arranged to suit the student’s schedule.

Course content. Students will interact with the curriculum using video lectures, required reading, journal reflections, practicum assignments and a final project or exam for each Module of study.  Mentors will grade all student coursework and enrich the learning process through discussion, Q and A, and cooperative brainstorming.

Community.  Students will be invited to a Center wide Facebook Group to interact with other Center for Sacred Window Studies students.
