Subscriptions Available from Rational Island Publishers

Present Time

Present Time is a good way to stay abreast of all the new developments in Co-Counseling and to keep in touch with what is happening in RC around the world.  It is a quarterly journal, published in January, April, July and October. 

A digital PDF subscription is now available, so you may subscribe to the print version, the digital version, or both. Present Time subscriptions must be prepaid.

 

To subscribe to Present Time, you can either: 

1) use a debit or credit on the Rational Island website—look for the "Subscriptions" link on the right side of the home page, OR 

2) download, print and fill out the form below and send it in with a check, money order or credit card information.  (Please do not send credit card information by email.)

Print Edition Present Time Subscriptions

Print edition subscriptions begin with the next issue of the journal. That is, you cannot begin your subscription with an already published issue because of postal requirements, but you are welcome to order back issues in addition to your subscription.

The cutoff date for new subscriptions (or changes to existing subscriptions) is the last day of the month preceding a particular issue—so, for example, your subscription or renewal must be in our hands by December 31 in order to receive the January issue as part of your subscription. If you were to subscribe or renew on or after January 1, your subscription or change wouldn't take effect until the April issue.

If you have a print subscription, then move but don't tell us in advance of your address change, it causes a surprising waste of resources. The post office does not forward bulk mail; instead it usually destroys undelivered journals. We may or may not receive a notice from the post office about your address change; if we do, we are charged a fee for the notice. This need not happen if you will kindly let us know of any address change with as much advance notice as possible.

You can email address changes to litsales@rc.org.

Adding a Digital Subscription to an Existing Print Subscription

If you have an existing Present Time print subscription with at least one year remaining on it and would like to add a digital subscription to it, you may do so for an additional cost of $2.50 per digital issue ($10/year). Digital subscription additions must be for a minimum of one year.

To order a fixed-term digital subscription (e.g., for one, two or five years), choose the PTOL One Year Subscription option on the Rational Island website and use the order quantity to select the number of years you want.  Downloadable form available here.

If you would like a digital subscription that expires at the same time as your print subscription, order the “DPT (Digital Present Time) Single Issue Add-on” subscription option. Rational Island staff will add enough single issues so your print and digital subscriptions expire with the same issue and email you a confirmation of the total cost.

Email any questions or special instructions to: litsales@rc.org


Subscriptions Oriented toward RC Teachers

There are two subscriptions available to RC Teachers:  RC Teacher Packet subscriptions (required for RC Teachers who read English) and RC Teacher Update (CD) subscriptions, which are completely optional. Here is a brief explanation of the two kinds of subscriptions and the differences between them:

RC Teacher Packet Subscriptions

RC Teacher Packets are packets of newly published RC literature, primarily print literature such as books and journals but also occasionally digital media (CDs or DVDs.) All RC teachers who read English are expected to subscribe to the Teacher Packets, but any RCer who would like to subscribe to the Teacher Packets is welcome to do so too. Teacher Packet subscriptions remain in effect until canceled by the subscriber—even if the subscriber stops being an RC Teacher.

RC Teacher Packets:

  • Are typically distributed every 12 - 24 months.
  • Vary in content and cost each time depending upon what literature has been recently released.
  • Are invoiced at the time of shipment.

Please note that the Request for Certification as an RC Teacher form includes the following agreement about Teacher Packets as a condition of becoming an RC teacher:

All RC teachers are expected, as part of their responsibility as RC teachers, to receive Teachers' Packets (one copy of each new RC publication in English) and display and sell the literature to the students in their classes. The teacher may sell the literature to her or his students or, if she or he wishes to keep it personally, take orders from the students or encourage them to order it for themselves. All the literature should be available to anyone teaching or learning RC. The only exception is if the teacher and her or his students do not read English.

If the cost of the literature is a hardship for you as a particular teacher and you cannot sell it or purchase it without help, you are expected to notify the International Reference Person that International Outreach Funds are needed by you in order to pay for the literature. This will not happen automatically. You, as the teacher, must apply for the International Outreach Funds to the International Reference Person and must take responsibility for seeing that this application is made.

How to Subscribe to RC Teacher Packets

English-speaking RC Teachers almost always subscribe to RC Teacher Packets as part of their application for certification as an RC Teacher.  If you are not an RC Teacher and wish to receive the RC Teacher Packets, or if you are an RC Teacher and wish to confirm your subscription status, please email your request and current mailing address to litsales@rc.org.

You will receive your first Teacher Packet when the next one becomes available; depending on timing, this may be as much as a year or more after you first subscribe. Meanwhile, of course, you are welcome to order any RC literature you want.

RC Teacher Update (RCTU) Subscriptions

Subscriptions to the RC Teacher Update (RCTU) audio recordings are now available to everyone. A subscription consists of the four audio recordings produced in a calendar year.  The release schedule for each new recording is variable, but typically occurs a few weeks after release of the latest issue of Present Time.

RCTU subscriptions:

  • Must be prepaid.
  • Are for a fixed term of one, two or three calendar years (e.g., for 2023, 2024, and/or 2025).
  • Are not automatically renewed. If you have a current RCTU subscription, you will be notified when your subscription expires and you will need to take action to renew your subscription.
  • Are postpaid (include postage).

How to Subscribe to RC Teacher Updates

RC Teacher Update (RCTU) subscriptions cost $20 per year postpaid ($22 for residents of Washington State, USA) and are available for up to three years.

To order a subscription to the RC Teacher Updates (RCTU) by credit card on the Rational Island website, search on the title "RC teacher update subscription" and select the option that you prefer.  Or you may download, print and fill out the form below and send it with check, money order or credit card information.  (Please do not send credit card information by email.)

RC Teacher Update Subscription Form

Mail or fax the form to: 
Rational Island Publishers 
19370 Firlands Way North
Shoreline, Washington 98133  USA

Tel +1 206 284 0311 

You may also place your credit card order by contacting the RCCR office in Seattle (call: +1 206 284 0311 or email us with your number, time zone you live in, and times we can call you: litsales@rc.org [do not send credit card information by email]).

If you would like to purchase the RC Teacher Update recordings individually, you may do so at a cost of $6 each. In past years, the recordings were on CDs.  Sets (four CDs per set) may be purchased for $25 per set plus shipping/handling, depending on availability. See a recent issue of Present Time, around pages 105-106, for more information.
