At this point, we have accepted our last on-line class for the time being. We have Level 1 attendance programs coming up and it may be likely that we hold the on-line program again in the future. For now, we plan a bit of a sabbatical offering the Level 1 classes in San Diego, Minnesota, Netherlands and Brazil. But the videos will give you an overview of the courses we cover).
