The last couple of weeks of our extended stay at our cottage in Quebec seem to be passing at warp speed. It’s bittersweet. I am relishing the sound of the geese on the lake and the beauty of the changing colours – the autumn leaves are falling – but I am looking forward to seeing family and friends.
I’ve always considered the fall to be a time of change and renewal. This was especially the case when I was an elementary school teacher. Excitement was high for teachers and students alike. An autumn wind made it even more so (though I can’t explain why), as children chased each other and the swirling leaves around the schoolyard at recess time. Excitement and leaves catapulted into my classroom!
It felt like that today for the Delaney training team! The winds of change have required some quick adjustments to our Fall 2022 training calendar. With our scheduled iap2 courses now full, we have added another Foundations Program to our calendar – no small feat all things considered.
We are happy to offer an Express Planning course November 28 – December 1, followed by the Techniques course December 5 – 8. If you, or someone you know, have ever considered taking the Foundations Program, now is the time! Course changes will be coming to iap2 in 2023.
I wish you all an exciting and healthy fall, with a good measure of time to enjoy the splendours of the season wherever you may be.
