Opportunities to be protagonist and for skills practice are provided. LPTI invites renowned Master Trainers to co-lead the workshop, bringing their specific expertise to the experience.
The workshop is held at Blue Mountain Retreat Center, a picturesque setting in the rolling hills of Western Maryland. The workshop schedule allows for free time to explore the naturally beautiful setting.
