Our workshops are now participant-only.
This means if a spouse or friend
wants to join you on the workshop
they will need to attend as a participant
and pay the same tuition.
This keeps our groups small and manageable and fun!
(Some 1-day workshops allow spouses.)
We also have new payment options and fees.
