“NL membership allows me to have access to content that shows how to attune and respond, that shows the implementation of principles in real time interactions, and that takes me past training of technique and into how to personally ‘be with’ both my horses and my clients. This is such a blessing and help for me as I do my work to help others.”

- Jim Harlow, LPC, and NL Certification Student

"The content available with Natural Lifemanship is worth triple the cost of my professional membership!"

FAQs

Can I pay monthly?

YES! You can pay for either membership level via a monthly or an annual subscription plan. You’ll save money by subscribing to an annual plan. A $15/month Basic subscription costs only $150/year, saving you $30, and a $30/month Professional subscription costs only $330 per year, also saving you $30.

How do I cancel or make changes to my plan, or change the credit card that is being charged?

You may switch or cancel your membership plan simply by visiting your dashboard when logged on to our site and clicking on Orders & Settings. At the top you will see any credit cards you have on file and that you have the ability to edit those. Beneath the credit card section, you’ll see your current subscription. If you click on the subscription number or the button that says "view" you’ll see more details regarding your subscription, including options to switch, pause, or cancel it.

I’m looking for ways to earn CE credits. Which subscription is best for me?

If you wish to earn CE credits, you should choose the Professional membership plan, which gives you access to the most courses offering CE credits. The Basic plan offers a smaller selection of courses with CE credits.

Which professional organizations approve the CE credits NL offers?

We are currently an approved CE provider by the National Board for Certified Counselors and NAADAC - The Association for Addiction Professionals. If you are uncertain whether or not our courses will meet the requirements of your professional licensure, please contact your state board.

How do I find courses?

On our website, if you look at the navigation bar at the top of each page, you’ll see a link to a page for Courses. If you click that link you’ll see a list of courses available for purchase, and you’ll also see a link at the top of the page to view the Members-Only courses where you’ll see courses available to Basic/Professional members and then beneath that list, the courses only available to Professional members. So long as you are signed in, when you click the title of a course available to your membership level, you will be able to begin the course and view the lessons. Once you have started a course, you can return it by going to your Dashboard and clicking the Courses link on the left side of the page. When browsing our Videos area (see next FAQ), you will also encounter some of our courses and may start them there.

Where do I find streaming videos?

Visit the Videos page by clicking the Videos link at the top of any page on our site. Scroll down and see the most recently added video series appearing first. There are several pages of video content. To scroll between the pages, please use the page buttons at the bottom of the Videos page.

The NL community truly demonstrates the core principle of connection in daily practice. NL and its founders, teachers and other members have been a source of growth and support beyond anything else offered to me during this roller coaster ride of caregiving for a terminally ill spouse.
