I have been doing workshops in NYC since 2006. I LOVE doing them but I used to do them through the Learning Annex and they don’t really support weekend workshops (GPYB/GPYP really needs an entire weekend). I have been asked numerous times to come to x city and do workshops and/or seminars.
Doing anything in NYC is expensive. It’s expensive for me and therefore, expensive for you. Not only do you have to COME HERE if you don’t live here but you pay a higher premium for the course because space cost so much. A few times I’ve managed to reduce it by getting sponsors but getting sponsors requires sales which I am NOT good at by any means.
I LOVE doing it live. I love meeting you guys, I love the Saturday evening dinners we do as a group…it’s GREAT. But the costs have gotten to be prohibitive. I didn’t do one workshop or seminar in 2016 because I’ve usually broken even but would lose on the prices or have to price it so high no one could afford it.
I’m going to do a trial of on-line workshops / seminars this year. It won’t be the same. Live weekend workshops are an immersive experience…you live/eat/breathe GPYB for 3 days and come away as if you were working in intensive therapy for months. I’m still going to do women’s retreats live because there is no way to recreate that amazing experience on-line, but I’m going to try workshops and seminars on-line for a while. I’m working on a few free webinars to introduce the various courses.
The QUESTION for all of you is: yes I’m going to do a full-blown GPYB workshop – that will be my first course offering…and I hope to do the first one live and then it will be available for you to take on your own…I am also going to do an affirmation workshop…but what else would you like to see by way of a seminar or workshop?
