Privacy Policy

We promise never to sell, rent, trade, or share your email with any other organizations or individuals. The only exception to this would be in putting you in touch with other individuals in situations where both you and that person or persons have explicitly authorized us to share your email with them.  

Personal communications to us by our clients and customers, whether in formal consultation sessions or through other media, are held in strict confidentiality. This is absolutely crucial for the safety that people need to be able to access and communicate about intimate matters of the heart and soul. 

Live courses and telecourses are often recorded for playback by course participants. With respect to privacy, participants should know that these recordings may subsequently be developed as online audio or multimedia courses to be sold through our webstore as elements of the ongoing curriculum of Human Sun Institute. The materials for these courses may also include edited selections from any online or email forums, such as “Google Group” emails, that participants and teachers may post.  However, we will always take the intimate private communications of participants carefully into account, and will not knowingly publish anything potentially embarrassing or inappropriate for public release.

The Human Sun HEART Work, including Maximizing Joy™, Waking Down in Mutuality®, and a variety of other teachings, trainings, and practices, is a whole-being process of spiritual and holistic growth, awakening, and ongoing transformation, in ourselves and in our relationships and activities.

It is not, and is not a substitute for, psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, or related approaches to psychological and relational healing. The Mayo Clinic defines psychotherapy as "an approach for treating mental health issues by talking with a psychologist, psychiatrist or another mental health provider.”

Today there are many schools and modalities of psychotherapy, not all of which involve talking as the sole or primary methodology. Most schools have their own training and certification processes, and most U.S. states have prerequisites that must be met for licensing, standards for practitioners’ professional conduct, and governing boards that ensure all licensed practitioners are conforming to those standards.

The Human Sun HEART Work is not an approach for treating mental health issues. Its only teacher/coaches are Saniel Bonder and Linda Groves-Bonder. They have always encouraged people who engage in this work to make wise use of psychotherapy for such treatment as needed. Neither of them is a trained or certified psychotherapist. Presently there are no plans to formally train, certify, and license other people to become official practitioners of the Human Sun HEART Work’s approach to serving others.
