However, such a buzz has been generated that we can now offer a second class in Calgary in the wonderful location of Artpoint, in southern Inglewood, which offers plenty of space, light, and easy parking.
Dates: Tuesday and Wednesday 12th and 13th June, 2012. Details below.
I would still like to arrange for a retreat at Blooming Inn, so if you are interested in this please email me. I have put the details for this below as well.
