Friendly Clinic and Tools for Harmony Within Diversity Workshops

May 24, 2020

The 2 hour “Friendly Clinics” began in April and I am meeting with participants about every week or two.   We’ve held weekly successful sessions already!  Each participant is welcome to bring specific situations of “Lessons Learned” or “puzzlements” to share and explore together.

Prerequisite: Anyone who has already taken some form of the Friendly Style Profile workshop (Tools for Harmony Within Diversity is most recent workshop title) can participate any time almost on a “drop in” basis.  (Please let me know at least 48 hours in advance so you can be included in the Group Profile Roster.)

Friendly Clinic dates (all Pacific Time Zone) are generally 2 hours:

Every other Wednesday 1 pm  (2 pm Mountain, 3 pm Central, 4 pm Eastern) August 4th – 1 pm

Tuesdays had been starting at 4 or 5 pm (depending on who signed up)

Weekend slots are available (Saturdays 10 am Pacific or Sundays 12 noon most likely)

Friendly Clinic sessions are set about 2 – 4 weeks in advance on request (day, date, time frame) so we are still guessing as to best preferred slots…and hope to eventually have them on some set slots every month…

The Tools for Harmony Within Diversity workshops are set for:

We have been offering Tools all day (usually a Wednesday or Saturday) 10 am – 6 pm (Pacific)           OR  Saturday 10 am – 2:15 pm (Pacific) and then the next Saturday same slot 10 am – 2:15 pm (Pacific)                                                                                           (Please register and fill out your “About Me” and your Friendly survey a week in advance)

This TOOLS workshop REPEATS about once a month.
