After 20 years of being a massage therapist, it was a relief to find a course to meet the ethics requirement that wasn't just recycling the same basic material - I really enjoyed the different way of engagement with reading the Dalai Lama's treatise on ethics, even if it took me longer than many classes to complete.

I really enjoyed the book, however it took me well over 6 hours to complete this course. The entire book needed to be read in order to answer the questions on the test.
