Thanks for posting this!

Is there any way the shop could please stock some of Michael's lecture notes for those who can't make it that day?

I'm not affiliated with the shop, but I'll pass the interest along to the owner next time I'm in.

Michael Weber has agreed to present his workshop in Kansas City as well. The workshop is open to 15 people and six slots are already filled. I don't know what the minimum number is that he requires, but no more than 15 will be admitted.

The cost will be $75 and it will run at least 2.5 hours in length and could well run much longer. Contact me if you're interested in attending.

I would like to sign-up and reserve a spot for the Kansas City workshop.

Here's my e-mail Josh: sprongshift@gmail.com

Thanks for the heads-up.

The lecture Monday, March 12th, cost is $20. Details will be finalized for the workshop after Michael has 15 confirmed attendees. (Seven down, eight to go)

Well, needless to say that Michael gave a fantastic lecture and a phenomenal workshop, I understand now why details were so slim; there was just so much and so little time.

I posted some of the better pictures I took from the lecture. Enjoy!

So mad that I missed this--was it well attended?

Also, was he selling "Real Secrets" subscriptions and did he have anything new to say?

We had about 50 people show up for the lecture, so it was fairly well-attended.
