  1. I love that there is an opportunity like this here in the United States...though I am of course feeling the pain of the great distances between the bulk of those states and NYC. I would love to hear about this from somebody who is able to attend.

    Maybe a traveling class will come to the geographic midsection at some point???

  2. It is indeed a very good opportunity, S.
