2016 WORKSHOP IN SYDNEY

Postby JohnW » Fri Jan 08, 2016 4:06 pm

THIRTEENTH AUSTRALIAN WORKSHOP

This is proposed for Sydney, one weekend early in the year, Friday evening to Sunday late morning. The workshop, if held, will be a “budget" one, run along the lines of those held in the past five years, where lower numbers have meant running it on my own, and using a suitable guest room rather than a conference room. Numbers will be limited to five participants, with a minimum of three. To keep room costs down, and airline costs down for those attending from outside N.S.W., I need to know that the workshop is proceeding by 22nd January. If I do not have at least three firm registrations by that date, the workshop may be cancelled.

I am offering three dates, and will choose the weekend which is most favourable for those who show interest: 19th-21st February, 4th-6th March and 18th-20th March.

People who intend to stay at the venue for the weekend need to know that the venue charges up to $468 for their room (total for the two nights - but less if booked well ahead. So the last date offers the best price). Also, they will need to cover the cost of meals. Because the numbers attending will have a direct bearing on the fee, I cannot at this stage say what the workshop fee will be, except that it is not likely to exceed $100.

At this stage I am requesting expressions of interest, to be emailed to me WITHOUT DELAY. The emails should specify which of the three weekends is possible for you. Email me at this address - recov2000@gmail.com.

I attended all earlier Australian workshops, and warmly recommend this coming workshop as an opportunity to receive substantial help in moving into eventual recovery from paruresis. Taking part in a workshop can, I believe, considerably reduce the amount of time involved in moving into satisfactory recovery, assuming that you keep up your practising methods as explained in the workshop.

Do not hesitate to email me for any further information you require.

Best wishes,
JohnW

I received a surprising number of enquiries within hours of giving notice of this workshop, and I can confirm that it will be held, and that the dates will be Friday night 18th March (meeting starting at 7.45 p.m.) to Sunday morning 20th (finishing about 11 a.m., depending on the co-operation of the venue administration). The venue is very close to Sydney Airport.

As the number of enquiries almost matched the maximum number, I invite further expressions of interest via email to me without delay. If I have to place people on a waiting list, I may be able to contemplate increasing the number of attendees. This will depend on whether the venue management can offer me satisfactory alternative arrangements to cater for larger numbers, without increasing the cost appreciably.

I am keen to get the enrolment process going without further delay, to keep down the cost to attendees as much as possible.

My email address, as already indicated, is recov2000@gmail.com
