Note: Part of the way that we keep these costs so low is by keeping admin. very low. Please do your best to be self-directed in scheduling yourself, setting reminders for yourself, and being mindful of re-scheduling. We also keep this very low-key and down-to-earth. We are just a group of people getting together in our home to build community and take care of ourselves - no bells and whistles here. It's great.
