Weekend Workshop Schedule

We plan to offer "live" weekend workshops via Zoom--with in-person dates in returning in 2023! 

Weekends take place Friday, Saturday, and most of the day on Sunday.
The enrollment is limited to no more than 20 people per weekend. It’s a great opportunity to learn intensely, be exposed to new ideas, and to network with fellow travelers on the path. The comment most often made on evaluations is, “I learned so much!”

Upcoming Weekend Workshop Dates are as follows, with most workshops being held live via Zoom.

Theory and Practice of Sex Therapy and Physical Illness, Mental Illness, and Disabilities

December 2-4, 2022 (VIRTUAL via Zoom)

*In person workshops will take place in Orange County, CA. The hotel is easily accessible from the Santa Ana Airport. For in person workshops, we do ask for a deposit of $150 to cover the additional cost of food and beverage. DEI scholarships for the food and beverage cost are available.
