What is the age range?
The youngest are in their thirties, the oldest are in their sixties and most people are late thirties to late fifties. No-one is too young or too old because the point of the day is to discover who you are when you meet people with your heart open and curious to meet the person in front of you.
How many people attend?
Between 20 and 32 participants attend each event.
Are there equal numbers of men and women?
Yes. Occasionally we have one more man or one more woman because of illness or emergencies that stop people attending at the last minute. It doesn't happen very often.
How does the Standby booking work?
If you book a standby place, the price is greatly reduced. In exchange for the price reduction, you guarantee that you will be available on the day and you won't find out whether you have a place of not until the Friday or Saturday before the event on Sunday. It is our way to ensure that the numbers of men and women that attend are equal.
If you book a standby place and cannot attend on the day, you do not get a refund. If you book a standby place and I cannot offer you a place, you get either a refund or a standby place for the next workshop, your choice. People who have pre-paid for their standby place will get offered a place first.
What if I'm nervous?
Almost everyone is a little nervous when they arrive. It's very natural. The morning is carefully structured so that by lunchtime, you'll be feeling much more relaxed.
