    I may be re-locating to Montvale and I’m interested in the course.
    It may be difficult to take the upcoming one but I want to establish a connection here and try to make it happen.
    So please consider this not as a paid application, but an interested party hoping to make it happen!

      Hi John,

      Thank you for connecting. I offer WFR every winter or spring. I will be scheduling a course in 2022. I teach WFA more often. Monthly January – June and at least once in the fall. Good luck with you move and I look forward to meeting you in the future.
