5) Learning Guides for each lesson have an option to print responses to questions, polls and personal reflections.

Soul & Science participants also have the choice to share their personal data anonymously in order to contribute to the Soul & Science National Data Project.  Participants within a subscribing health care organization would also have options for contributing their responses in order to create an internal data base with comparisons to national scores and averages.

Learning Groups will bring their experiences with these tools to future Soul & Science study groups as an important component of on-going learning.
