Oh, and here's some nice things people said about our events :)
100% worthwhile and real value for money. A great launchpad which has sparked some fantastic ideas and inspired me to take action!

Great content, well presented and structured. The workshop has helped us get more focused on the concept and created some new ideas.

Loved Sharmash’s talk which carried in it the heart of meditation practice amongst a curious but relaxed audience. Very enjoyable!
