Training Location: This training will be held live online and hosted on Zoom.


Please note this training is set for North America Pacific Time. We understand the time of this training may be inconvenient for some of our international community members in other parts of the world.  Due to the experiential focus in learning NARM, we require full, live participation in the Online NARM Basics Training . If the time difference will make your full, live participation difficult, we advise you not to sign up for this training.  Please note that no special accommodations can be made.  If you are able to commit to participating fully, we welcome your registration to this training regardless of your time zone.

The NARM Training Institute is currently only focused on training offerings in North American time zones. In the future, if we begin offering trainings that cater to other time zones, we will share that information on our website and to our newsletter subscribers.
