Registration for the series is capped at 20 participants and will close on October 31th to allow time for Circle of Health kits to be shipped to participants. Participants can register for subsequent individual workshops up to a week before the date of the workshop.

* PLEASE NOTE: 'Understanding the Circle of Health' is a pre-requisite for the other Circle of Health workshops. If you feel that you have completed equivalent training and would like to participate in an intermediate workshop without completing Understanding the Circle of Health, please contact the facilitators at info@thequaich.pe.ca

''This type of training is excellent for it saves time in travel. You are able to access it at your desk with tools we already have such as the computer and telephone. It is very interactive and it has the feel of a face to face classroom where you can raise your hand and also ask questions and receive answers in a timely manner.”
