Classes will be held every Wednesday evening from November 4- December 16th (skipping Thanksgiving week). Time will be 5-7:30pm Pacific Time or 6-8:30pm Mountain Time. Classes will include around 90 minutes of lectures, 45 minutes of discussion/Q & A, and a 10 minute break between speakers.
All our speakers are beaming in via the Zoom webinar platform and all of it will be recorded. Participants will receive a private YouTube recording of the weekly session within 24 hours of the class. So you may miss out on participating in the Q & A portion of the class, you will still get all the recorded content, handouts, etc.
