Registration for The Heal Your Codependency Full Access Membership (the “Membership”) requires your agreement to the terms contained in this consent, waiver, and this agreement (this “Agreement”).
Please read the terms of this Agreement carefully, as they may affect your legal rights.
Membership Recordings, Uses, and License
By registering for the Membership, I hereby understand and agree that MBI Holdings, LLC dba Free The Self (the “Company”) and representatives or other persons authorized by the Company will be recording the Membership and that these recordings and copies or reproductions of same may contain my name, likeness, statements, or voice (collectively, the “Recordings”). I also understand that the Recordings will be the exclusive property of the Company to use at its sole discretion during and after the Membership on terms in this Agreement, without providing me additional compensation.
Accordingly, I hereby grant to and in favor of the Company and its successors, heirs and assigns the unrestrained, irrevocable, worldwide, assignable, sublicensable, and perpetual license to use, publish, display, broadcast, adapt, license, modify, and reproduce the Recordings for any purpose across all media now known or created in the future. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, I hereby and forever authorize the Company to use the Recordings in connection with advertisement and promotion of the Company’s memberships or other endeavors, sharing records of its Membership on social media (whether related to the Membership or otherwise) or in public displays, exhibitions, and educational materials connected to its memberships or other endeavors.
I hereby and irrevocably waive any right that I may have to inspect and approve of the finished product or final version of the Recordings before they are released or disclosed, whether to the public or for internal Company use. I further waive and release any claims in law or equity that I may have against the Company including its successors, heirs, and assigns arising from any use to which the Recordings may be put, including without limitation any intellectual property or moral rights of any description, any right to approve of the use of the Recordings, any claim for invasion of privacy, violation of the right of publicity, defamation, or copyright infringement, and any associated claims for damages or compensation. During and after the Membership, I further agree to waive and release all intellectual property and moral rights in connection with the Recordings and the Company’s use in accordance with terms herein.
Assumption of Risks, Waiver, and Release
While the Membership fosters health and well-being, any activity of a physical nature carries risk of injury and loss. While the care and safety of our participants is of utmost importance, such risks cannot be entirely eliminated. I acknowledge and am aware of such inherent risks and am voluntarily participating in the Membership, including all related activities during or after the Membership, with full acceptance and assumption of all such risks and dangers, whether caused by the Company or any of its representatives, myself, or others.
In consideration for the right to participate in the Membership, I hereby and forever waive all legal rights to sue and any and all claims I may ever have against the Company and its directors, officers, shareholders, employees, contractors, agents, advisors, and authorized representatives (the “Released Parties”) for any loss, injury, death, damage or expense that I may suffer, incur or experience arising out of or in connection with the Membership.
I hereby and forever release the Released Parties from any and all liability and from any and all claims, demands, damages, expenses, costs, actions or causes of action in respect to death, injury, loss or damage to me or my property, however caused, arising out of or in connection with the Membership and notwithstanding that such loss, injury, death, or damage may have arisen by reason of the negligence of any of Company or any of its authorized representatives, as the case may be.
The Company and its authorized representatives are committed to fostering a respectful environment where Membership participants are welcoming and inclusive of all, and treat others with dignity and respect and in a non- discriminatory manner.
I hereby acknowledge that if, in the reasonable opinion of any of the Company’s authorized representatives, I am acting in a disrespectful manner to any such authorized representatives or the Membership participants or both, I may be removed from the Membership without refund.
I also agree to be on time and present before the Membership begins.
No Medical Advice, Diagnosis, or Treatment
Please note that the Membership is not a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment. The Membership is intended to provide somatic, nervous system based information for your education and learning. The Membership has not been scientifically evaluated and should not be used as a substitute for medical or psychiatric advice, cannot diagnose or treat any medical or psychiatric condition and does not replace care from a physician. Neither the Company nor its authorized representatives are psychiatrists, psychologists, or medical professionals. Always consult a healthcare professional if you suspect you require medical or psychiatric treatment. If you believe or suspect you are experiencing an emergency, call your local emergency services immediately.
Limitation of Liability
The Company’s liability with respect to its obligations under this Agreement or otherwise, whether arising in contract (including fundamental breach), tort (including negligence) or otherwise, and even if the Company has been advised of the possibility of such damages and for any and all claims arising out of or in connection with the Membership, regardless of the form of action, shall not exceed the aggregate amount of the fees that I paid the Company to attend the Membership.
In no event shall the Company be liable for any indirect, incidental, or consequential damages of any kind, including without limitation, indirect, special, punitive or exemplary damages for lost business, lost savings, lost data, and lost profits, regardless of the cause and whether arising in contract (including fundamental breach), tort (including negligence), or otherwise, even if the Company has been advised of the possibility of such damages.
This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between me and the Company in connection with and following my participation in the Membership. This Agreement supersedes all prior representations, warranties, agreements and understandings, whether oral or written, express or implied in respect of the foregoing. No supplement, modification or waiver of this Agreement shall be binding unless signed by me and the Company.
I agree that this Agreement will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Idaho and the laws of The United States applicable therein, without regard to their conflict of laws principles. Should a dispute arise as a result of this Agreement, I agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the State of Idaho and waive any jurisdictional objections to such courts. I further agree that the prevailing party in any action that arises as a result of this Agreement will be entitled to receive from the other party its reasonable legal costs.
Acknowledgement and Independent Legal Advice

I am of the legal age of majority in your jurisdiction and am authorized to grant the permissions, waivers, and releases set forth above. I have either sought or hereby waive the opportunity to seek independent legal advice prior to accepting the terms of this Agreement.
Refund Policy – VERY IMPORTANT PLEASE READ CAREFULLY
Due to the digital nature of memberships, no refunds are offered on monthly access. 14-day refund period is offered for annual and lifetime memberships.
Do Not Share Details Of Trauma In Class: This container is not appropriate for trauma details or discussion. If you need assistance with a trauma that comes up, please email us at experts @ freetheself.com, share in The Community, or share in the Student Community in the Learning System.
No Sharing Of Politics or Politically Charged Topics: Do not discuss politics or politically sensitive topics, events, or persons (examples: abortion, republican, conservative, liberal, democrat, Trump, Hillary Clinton, etc).
You can use generic phrasing if your experience contains something political. Something like “this political thing”. No specifics!
We have this rule due to the high divisive and heated outcomes that have happened in the past.
No Sharing Of Religion/Spirituality: Do not discuss or mention religious or spiritual things using specifics, such as naming a religion or spiritual practice by name, or a spiritual person by name.
You can use these general terms: “my higher power” or “a spiritual practitioner” or “spiritual experience” or “spiritual belief system”.
We have this rule due to high conflict experiences in the past, along with the reality that many students are survivors of religious and spiritual abuse.
No Trying To Fix, Rescue, Or Direct Other Students:
Only contribute guidance or advice if 1) it is asked for, and 2) you have experience or expertise in that topic. Otherwise, express care and understanding and hold space for that person.
Use of Pronouns:
If a person has pronouns stated in their ZOOM name or account name description, please remember to use them when referencing that individual.
If you have preferred pronouns, please place them in your ZOOM name and account name description.
If one feels hurt or activated by the beliefs or perspectives of another, it is worth taking some time to explore that experience, what it means to you, and how you want to care for yourself. This is a place for generating acceptance of difference, not for judgment or trying to change someone else. Use A-L-I and other tools for navigating that experience. If it is something you need to discuss with a student, you need to get consent from that student before discussing it with them. Do not involve Marshall or his team in addressing differences unless it involves racism, bigotry, abuse, or violates the rules above.
The following actions will not be tolerated and will result in immediate removal from all communities, classes, and termination of membership:
