It is informal, and participants are invited to contribute their questions, or simply listen to the others. All are welcome. No bookings are necessary. Come and go as you wish. Come every Sunday if you wish, or just once to find out how it works. The seminars are not held during school holidays. Details: 0490 839 141.
