Course tuition will not be refunded once a course has begun because all of the audio files and videos are immediately available to you. Kelly wants your full commitment before you begin; she’s fully committed to your progress once you are in the community.


If the course is not paid in full at the start, a payment plan will be in place with the first payment reserving your spot in the course. The remaining balance must be made according to the payment plan with payments due every four weeks following registration or as according to the agreement. If this payment plan is not honored, students will be removed from the course and access from the forum will be revoked.


Tuition refunds for any course through Your Radiant Soul will be issued if your cancellation request is received at least 48 hours before the start of a course, minus your non-refundable deposit and a processing fee of $100.

Though no refunds will be issued after a course has begun, if circumstances necessitate, you may delay your start date one time. Requests to defer course start dates should be sent to

In her role as your coach and guide through any course, she does not engage in patient diagnosis or the practice of physical therapy, mental health therapy or medicine. While Kelly Gardner is a licensed mental health provider, she is NOT providing mental health care to course participants during their participation in this course.

The services offered through this program are at all times restricted to coaching, consultation and evaluation with the understanding that you must do the work within yourself with the support and guidance that the group provides. 

In this course, Kelly is operating as your coach and course leader, not your primary mental health provider. If in doubt, please ask for clarification, referrals can be made if needed.  

Kelly will do her utmost to make it clear when she is offering an opinion and when she is delivering facts. If you are unclear during your coursework with Kelly, it is your responsibility to ask for clarification.

If you have questions regarding your mental health care or other medical advice, see your therapist or doctor.
