 We work with the information being provided to our workers in each state regarding

 As our groups/courses/events re-open, our website will be the most up-to-date source of accurate information.

We have protocols in place to ensure yours and our staff safety. Each venue determines the size of our groups and workshops. During this difficult time, if you are seeking any clarification please call the facilitator.

 We apologise for any inconvenience but assure you that as soon as we are able to, it is our priority to resume all our groups and courses on a regular, on-going basis.
