If you are interested in knowing where I will be teaching in the fairly near future, see the list below, although be sure to confirm with the event’s website: some of these are still in the planning stage, although far enough along that I know I’ll be there, even if what I’ll be teaching is not fully confirmed.
If you would like to know more about the Explore 4 events (listed by date in sequence on this page), they have their own section.
If you are interested in obtaining information on what is involved in having me teach at your event, head over here. I can only accept a few invitations each year; I do aim for geographic diversity.
Any 2020 or 2021 event not indicated below as canceled is either (1) completed or (2) tentative, depending on progress with covid-19. Apologies if this is a bit jumbled. Keeping up with the cancellations and reschedulings in this uncertain time is dicey, to say the least.
