We have made the course easily accessible for you. Every Monday a new topic is released, with a set of videos for you to watch (40-60 minutes total per week). You can watch them on desktop or mobile, or even listen whilst driving or preparing a meal!

In the final (8th) week we invite you to attend a Live Online Workshop on Zoom. If you can't watch live, you will be able to watch the replay inside your membership portal.
