Intro 2.0 - August 19 - 24
Last year there was an overflow of applicants, so we added a second section of the Intro workshop

September 1–7 only workshop on the west coast at Chumleighland in the Woods. This workshop is being re-scheduled for next year because of unforseen circumstances.

Just added, a page of podcasts featuring Avner, including a 1986 appearance on Fresh Air with Terry Gross. Check it out.
