Don’t see a location or date that works for you? Over half of my workshops are by request. Become a local organizer and host a training in your area. Most of the time you can attend the workshop for free!

The workshop prepared me so much more than I ever thought possible and ever would have learned otherwise - not only in technical skills, but in my faith in birth, life, myself and others.
