We are committed to maintaining your personal information. Information you share on this website will never be given to a third party.  By giving us your email address or registering for a class, you agree to receive communication from us regarding upcoming events of interest and member news.  We occasionally will send out emails on behalf of a third party, (example: soliciting survey participants or dispersing information that may be helpful to our members), but those emails will always come directly from AKDHA; your name and email is not released to that third party.  You can remove yourself from all email communications by replying to any email from us, or by directly emailing us at and requesting to be removed from our list.


Information provided on this site is secured and encrypted by Wix.

A Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL certificate, allows visitors to view a site over an HTTPS connection. It secures the connection between your browser and the web address you’re visiting. Wix provides an SSL certificate automatically for all sites.

When a webpage has a SSL certificate, you can see a lock icon on the address bar next to the domain. Clicking this icon shows you more SSL details. However, if there isn't an SSL certificate, an "i" icon appears instead.
