Without limiting any of those representations or warranties, the Owner has the right (though not the obligation) to, in the Owner’s sole discretion (i) refuse or remove any content that, in the Owner’s reasonable opinion, violates any of the companies’ policy or is in any way harmful or objectionable, or (ii) terminate or deny access to and use of the Website to any individual or entity for any reason, in the Owner’s sole discretion.

Nothing on our Website is a promise or guarantee of such changes. Your level of success in attaining similar results is dependent upon a number of factors including your skill, knowledge, ability, dedication, self-honesty, patience, openness, and your perseverance.

Again, whatever changes in your life that you make as a result of our journeys, retreats, webinars and videos is totally up to you based on the factors stated in the Guarantees Disclaimer above.
