Questions?

  • In-person and online? How's that going to work?  Offering these sessions in-person and online allows those who live at  distance  or wish to avoid in-person contact to participate fully in these sessions. Those attending in-person will have the flexibility to hop online as their situation dictates or public health restrictions change.  We'll have a number of cameras and screens in the meeting space that will allow everyone to see and hear each other clearly and engage in one-to-one interactions, too.
  • How many participants can attend? The course is designed for up to 12 participants and a minimum of 6.  A maximum of 6 participants may attend in-person. 
  • Who's facilitating and what are your qualifications? I am an accredited coach and facilitator. For the past three years I have facilitated a circle of women exploring the theme of aging, in-person, online and a combination of both. I have participated in and received special training in offering an aging from the Center for Courage and Renewal. In addition, with my partner Leslie Chandler, I facilitate short retreats outdoors and online that offer participants an opportunity to step back from their daily life, reflect and recharge. You can read more about Winifred and Leslie  here. And you can read my rationale for offering this course here.
