Mitch Posada is the graphic artist who designed most of the download covers, banners and illustrations for this site.  Sanaya worked with Mitch for hundreds of hours to create the download cover art and web banners just to fit the energy of the meditations and Orin and DaBen's vibration, and we are not licensing the artwork on our site for use by others as the energy in the art is very specific to Orin and DaBen's work.

Please visit links at the bottom of the page for more information about copyright and permissions for specific courses.

Guidelines for making DaBen and Orin's journeys available to your students/Internet Policies

Orin and DaBen Light Body journeys:
Streaming:  Because it is too easy for people to capture and copy streaming audio, and then to post it on the internet or other sites, we do not give people permission to stream any of the Orin or DaBen audio courses or single journeys or Thaddeus' music by itself, openly via the Internet, Skype, or other applications. 

Teacher's Light Body journeys:
Internet Applications: The light body journeys given by a teacher can be posted on a website type application where they are only available to the students who've opted to join the class and are password protected for those students only.  The light body journeys may not be shared with others who have not taken that class. No Orin and DaBen meditations may be posted online or through any social media such as YouTube, Facebook, and so on.

Conference Call: It is fine to offer light body meditations by conference call to students, as long as they are not the actual Orin and DaBen meditations being played, but the teacher's class meditations. The only thing we ask is that the journeys not be posted on the internet unless they are password protected and only available to the students taking that class, and that students do not share or make them available through the internet to other people.
Skype or Video Conferencing: It is fine to hold video conferences teaching people the light body as long as the students own the six-volume Orin and DaBen light body courses if being taught in English or the Japanese version if being taught in Japan, just as if it were being taught in person in a live class setting. Orin and DaBen journeys may not be played on Skype, just the teacher's class meditations.  We ask that the video conference or Skype sessions be kept private, not open to the public, and not be shared with any one who is not taking that class.
PDF: We do ask that students not share or post the PDF material that comes with the courses as each student should have their own to work with.
Selling downloads: If the downloads will be the actual Orin and DaBen meditations from the audio courses, we request that the teacher not make them available for download in any format as they are copyrighted and we do not allow people to offer them via other websites as we want to make sure the quality is maintained. USA: Students are required to own the six-part Awakening Your Light Body course. International: While students are not required to purchase the course, if the teacher is teaching in a manner other than a live class setting, the teacher is required to either transmit the journeys themselves as DaBen does, or have each student purchase the official language version of the course, if one is available, like Japanese.
Orin Meditations you can play and share online:
You can lead meditations by using the exercises at the end of each chapter in the books, or base them on Orin's meditations. Go here for more information on teaching Orin courses based on Orin's books and audio.
You have permission to play Orin's FREE full length guided meditations and/or his short 3-5 minute guided meditations for teleseminars or like classes. The Orin meditations on this web page are fine to play for an audience.  We would appreciate your mentioning our website, so people can explore our site and learn more about the source of the meditations and others they might be interested in.  If you go to Orin's Meditation Room on our website, you will see the following:
Go here to start listening to Orin's short 3-5 minute meditations
Go here for full-length free Orin Audio Meditations
You may not post any of the other Orin journeys, including those from seminars, on any media, including YouTube, FaceBook, your own site, and so on.
