A note from Cynthia: “Up and running at last: our long-awaited Introductory Wisdom e-course!!! Deep bows to Robbin Whittington for her brilliant and meticulous shepherding of this project from start to finish. This will be of particular interest to those of you living in far-flung corners of our Wisdom network who have not been able to personally attend an introductory Wisdom School.”
