It had been a year and a half since I led a Women Moving Forward® in person so the July 20-22 workshop was special.
First of all we had to wear masks indoors so I chose one of my shields so the participants could see my face.
Second we had to limit the number to only 6 participants 8 total in the room.
Third we required all be vaccinated or have a negative covid test within 48 hours of the first day of the workshop.
Even with all of that.....
IT FELT GREAT!
We could go much deeper in person than via Zoom.
We could have more interaction then on Zoom and
Even though we were masked we could read each other's reactions quicker and easier than on Zoom.
In short it was a three dimensional experience in person whereas on Zoom it tends to be flatter and more two dimensional.
Don't get me wrong we have done some pretty spectacular workshops via Zoom this last year including a very successful Women Moving Forward® And I am thankful for the technology.
We will continue some Zoom workshops
especially since the Delta variant is taking over. We will also offer in person workshops as long as we follow all safety guidelines.
We will now be requiring EVERY participant be fully vaccinated to attend our in person workshops.
No exceptions will be made! If you want to attend our in person workshops you MUST BE VACCINATED!!
We have always made our workshops a safe place to be especially WMF® we will continue that by making sure it is also a safe place to be Medically!
If you disagree with this policy or you feel it limits your freedom in some way I am sorry. However that does not mean you get to attend unvaccinated and thereby limiting all of our freedoms to remain well and healthy.
Hopefully you will be able to be vaccinated in time for the next SVVCI® workshop you want to attend!
I look forward to seeing all of you sometime soon!
