Kelley Beesten and Miriam Schroth are the organisers of this event. We are very happy that we can bring this great offer to Europe. This is the first time that the Advanced Teacher Training will ever be held outside the USA. Why only one location? Travelling has not become easier and cheaper in recent years, so we have decided to choose only one location for this event. And since Soest offers everything we need (space, accommodation, good travel connections, in the middle of Europe, …), we decided on this.

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Soest.

Kelley and Miriam
