At Central Maryland School of Massage, we are dedicated to the path of world peace, compassion to all living beings, and to honesty. We believe that it is essential that our work be nonviolent in nature, and that the goals of learning and therapy be those of the client rather than the therapist.
In keeping with this belief, it is our philosophy that there is a direct correlation between how we view ourselves and how we view others. So as we increase the awareness and kindness with which we meet ourselves, physically and psychologically, we enhance the sensitivity and kindness with which we meet our families, our communities, and our clients.
To support an environment that is clear and empowering to all, we seek the following:
We consider your participation, which includes your attendance, in the evaluation of your completion of each modality. Attendance means being in the classroom for the entire class (not leaving early or coming late). We understand that life happens and absences(s) might occur. If you miss a day, you are responsible for making up the material. See your class instructors for more details.
GRADING CONSISTS OF
All of us, staff and students, are responsible for creating a supportive learning experience. We can do this by respecting one another’s differences, being on time as best as possible, and being aware of the volume of our voices.
We are here to support you in your learning process in any way we can, and are open to suggestions you might have that would serve you more appropriately.
That is what learning is. You suddenly understand something you’ve understood all your life, but in a new way. Dorris Lessing
