When you are promoting or sharing the theory and praxis of the training, you are required to identify the source material as developed by the Institute for Intuitive Intelligence®, and yourself as an Intuitive Intelligence® Teacher. This applies if you are using 10% or more of the Intuitive Intelligence®Teacher Certification curriculum in your program. We recommend that you do this at the beginning of your training and in your shared teaching resources provided to your students.
During the teaching of your programs and workshops, you are not required to quote Ricci-Jane or reference the Institute for Intuitive Intelligence® if the program is more than 10% of the curriculum of the Teacher Certification. You are simply required to ensure students know the origin of the material in their decision to enrol, and at the beginning of the program.
If you are sharing the practices or theory for promotional purposes including lead magnets, webinars, online meditations, interviews, articles, blogs, social media posts of all kinds, multi-author books, and anything else of this nature, then you must identify the Institute for Intuitive Intelligence® as the originator of the work.
The theory and praxis of Intuitive Intelligence® that you are trained in as a Certified Teacher, is original content, even when we reference other’s work. That is because we are bringing together existing knowledge in a new way. For example, teaching intuition development through the Hermetic Laws is an example of the original use of existing material. Some students have previously tried to claim that as both intuition and Hermetic Laws existed prior to the Institute’s training, then there is no need to identify Ricci-Jane Adams or the Institute as the originator of this work.
Originality in research can be defined in any of the following ways:
- Setting down a major piece of new information in writing for the first time.
- Continuing a previously original piece of work.
- Providing a single original technique, observation or result in an otherwise unoriginal but competent piece of research.
- Showing originality in testing somebody else’s idea/theory.
- Carrying out empirical work that hasn’t been done before.
- Making a synthesis of things that haven’t been put together before.
- Using already known material but with a new interpretation.
- Trying out something in this country that has previously been done only elsewhere.
- Taking a particular technique and applying it in a new area.
- Bringing new evidence to bear on an old issue.
- Being cross-disciplinary and using different methodologies.
- Looking at areas not previously explored in a particular discipline.
- Adding to knowledge in a way that has not be done before.(Phillips and Pugh 2010).
On this basis, the originality of the theory and praxis is established, and deidentified use of the individual component parts of the training would be a breach of copyright.
We encourage you to use the logos developed specifically for you as a Certified Teacher in the promotion of your training. You must include the logo most relevant to you in your student resources.
