Please read the details below before you proceed.
COPYRIGHTS, PERMISSIONS, & ACCREDITATIONS
The course/session that you offer should have all the necessary rights. We take issues with copyright very seriously so remember to have content that is strictly by you. If you’re using someone else’s course, you must share credit with them and if & when felt necessary a written permission may be requested.
If a teacher/coach uses someone else’s trademarked term/practice, then Decoding Wellness will pull out the material, they won’t be compensated and the participant’s will get a refund.
DISCLAIMERS & WARNINGS
If your course material, meditation, visualization, or article covers sensitive and triggering topics like depression, eating disorders, and the likes, we require that you place a “trigger warning” note at the end of the article, and at the beginning of the audio or lecture during live sessions.
Furthermore, reminders to exercise necessary caution and steps to ensure safety and health, like avoiding driving or operating of heavy machinery, should also be included in the guidelines and description when necessary.
To make sure that Decoding Wellness remains a place of refuge, we refrain from accepting content that deals with or contains any of the following topics.
Sexuality plays a huge role in achieving overall well-being. However, until we put appropriate filters for tracks that are sexual in nature, contain sexual references, have sexual undertones, and/or are sexually suggestive, we shall refrain from accepting such.
Hyper-Political, Hate Speech, & Explicit Language
Content that promotes, bashes, and discredits specific organizations or movements will not be accepted. Topics like this may be divisive and polarizing to a general audience. We also do not tolerate hate speech or discrimination of any kind.
Tracks with explicit language may be accepted if it is within the context and not used profusely. A disclaimer/warning in the description is also required.
We believe in the highest Supreme intelligence who/which governs the entire cosmos, including everything from politics, social agendas, to our body. We don’t believe in Conspiracy theories which is a form of victimization and nullifying the presence of the Supreme Intelligence.
Techniques of Hypnosis in articles
We believe hypnosis should be practiced only in a safe environment, preferably in a face-to-face setting with a trained practitioner. You can include hypnosis in your live course sessions, but not in articles. Kindly refrain from teaching hypnosis in articles.

Although we appreciate the Parents & teachers who have programs for children and share the mindfull, healthy practices with children, however we do not accept photos/audios/videos that include children or children’s voices.

Requirements and Guidelines for sharing a Course with Wellness Decoded
Courses are a great way to share more of your work and build a community around your services, and for our building network to go in-depth in teachings that complement their practice.
LIVE COURSE EVENT
At Wellness Decoded we’re looking for Coaches/Teachers who want to be LIVE with their teachings for their participants. This will build trust, bonhomie, and community as well as give them the repute that they are looking for.
During these LIVE SESSIONS the Coach/Teacher must share their best self to the participants and be compassionate and kind with their words, gestures and teachings.
The videos can’t be pre-recorded as we are preferring LIVE sessions as of now, but you can provide e-book, pdf’s, audios to your audience/participants after your LIVE session is over and mention these details to them at the start of the session.
Before sharing a course, please make sure you have the relevant qualifications, accreditations, or expertise to support the topic you will be covering.
- FREE AUDIOS
If possible during the ad of your course share a short audio describing the benefits of your course or a short visualization or meditation teaser from your course content. During your course, you can also recommend participants listen to some of your free practices to integrate these teachings and skills from your course into their everyday lives.

Please make sure you have shared your stripe/paypal account details with us.
We reserve the right to reject any courses that do not meet any of the above requirements.
- Decoding Wellness courses must include a written title and a description, with an appealing image.
- Every course’s curriculum should have own written titles and descriptions shared with us.
- At the end of each Live lesson, the coach/teacher is required to share a survey form (provided by Decoding Wellness) or ask the participants to share their view of the course. This will help their practice further.
- Each LIVE session will be an interactive classroom where teachers can respond using audio or text.
AUDIO FORMAT & QUALITY
As premium offerings, your audio files for courses must be in mp3 format and studio quality. We strive to keep not only the content quality thoughtful and well-crafted but the audio quality as well as part of our promise to the participants. And since courses are paid products, typically users are also more discerning of the overall quality of content. Kindly ensure that there is little to no extra noise in your recordings like objects falling, dogs barking, people talking in the background, footsteps, and similar external sounds. This will also help your course get better ratings and reviews.
A typical meditation/technique/visualization should not range more than 15-20 minutes. But can be flexible depending on your course structure.
The quality of your services will also determine your presence, so use it to your benefit!
If adding background music to your audios, please make sure you own the copyrights or you are using royalty-free music.
Please make sure your selected image meets our requirements.
COURSE CLASSROOM GUIDELINES
Every course has a featured LIVE Session which will be interactive, so participants can ask questions.
Kindly dedicate around 15 minutes to respond to course questions and reviews. Checking the chat box in between lessons and encouraging participants to ask their questions will put you ina good stride with your participants and can benefit in the long-term success of your course.

EARNING REVENUE FROM YOUR COURSE AT DECODING WELLNESS.
Our intention at Decoding Wellness is to help Coaches/ teachers earn meaningful revenue from their work. This is made possible through the following ways:
- Individual Course Sales
- Donations (if any)
It’s possible for teacher/coaches to receive donations from their participants. There will be three donation amounts available: US$2.99, US$6.99, and US$20.99.
The teacher/coach will receive 80% of the revenue while Decoding Wellness gets 20% to maintain the platform seamlessly.
Let’s say you receive a donation of US$20.99. You will receive 80% of this which is US$16.79.
Decoding Wellness (20%): US$4.19
Teacher/Coach (80%): US$16.79.
INDIVIDUAL COURSE SALES
Courses will be made available to the participants on our website, and ads will be placed at various platforms to attract your right clients.
The teacher/Coach will receive 50% of the revenue per course (50/50 Split) after the platform fee of 4% is added to the cost of your course and has been considered.
For example, for a course that costs US$33.99, the 4% platform Fee is US$1.35. So ultimately, Decoding Wellness receives US$32.64. This will then be split 50/50. The teacher/coach will then get US$16.32 for every individual sale.
The breakdown is as follows:
Course Price: US$33.99
Less 4% platform Fee: US$1.35
Net Earnings: US$32.64
Decoding Wellness (50%): US$16.32
Teacher/Coach (50%): US$16.32
Our payment cycle for Teachers/Coaches will be monthly as we’ll like to take into consideration the donations received too. “Monthly means” within the month of the Live Session if it happens in the 1stor 2nd week of a month, but if the Live session is scheduled and done in the 3rd or 4th week of a month, the Teacher/Coach will receive the payment within the 15th of the next month.
If the payment day falls on a non-working day, the payment will be received on the next working day.
If as a Teacher/Coach your income is not more than $10.00, then we have to wait for your courses next cycle to complete the payment, as the transfer fee and maintenance fee will not allow us to proceed with this number.
When you provide us your payment details, we will share with you the form you need to fill up so we can proceed with your payment.
