Please refrain from wearing any fragrances such as perfume, cologne, after-shave, essential oils or aromatherapy to accommodate our participants who are have allergies to fragrances.


There will be breaks throughout the day, with a 60-minute lunch break starting around 12:30pm. There are some restaurants and a Trader Joe’s (4609 14th Ave NW, Seattle, WA 98107) conveniently located walking distance from our venue.


We will have some snacks and refreshments available. Please bring snacks if you think you will get hungry throughout the day, or if you have special dietary preferences.


It’s completely normal to have some fear and hesitation come up before an event like this. Your facilitator, Frank Macri, is an introvert himself and totally understands the anxiety that came come up before putting yourself in a new group of people.

From the moment you arrive, you will be given a warm welcome from our team. We promise by the end of the weekend you will be inspired by the wonderful people you’ve met.
