Try it. It can be just an entertaining workshop or it can be a remarkable tool that we can use in our everyday lives in all our dealings with other people.

Thursday, 26 March and Thursday 2 April (both days are necessary), from 8:45am until about noon, at the Gateway Retreat, Xaibe. Charge is $20 to cover cost of photocopying handout. Optional pot luck lunch following.
