Agenda for 2019 will not be posted until much closer to our time together, but this gives you an idea of our time together. Each year we have duplicate workshops for those that couldn’t get to all of them (to many good choices) and then some new ones.

Download to your phone or print the Becoming 2018 Agenda here.

Please note that we have ten workshop choices and the hardest thing you’ll have to do all weekend is deciding on which five to attend. No sign up required. You just show up at the workshop.
