Attendance for this workshop is limited to keep it intimate. Tickets are "first-come first-serve" and are NON-REFUNDABLE. If you are unable to attend after signing up, you can sell your ticket to someone else or we will try to help you by putting you in touch with people that have waitlisted (if there is a waitlist). 


Travel and lodging is up to each person. Once you have purchased your ticket, we will add you to our private group on FB. Enjoy communicating with other attendees for possible co-lodging, carpools, etc..  In NY several ladies combined forces and rented a small house through Airbnb. You will also have the added benefit of interacting with all the Medina, NY attendees who went before you.


Travel - For those who may be flying, Fallbrook is equally spaced between San Diego International, AKA Lindberg Field and John Wayne airport in Orange county.  However, there may be more flights with better rates into San Diego.  Once landed Fallbrook is approximately and hour north of Lindberg and one hour south of John Wayne.


Fallbrook is known for its artist community, farming, horses and avocado groves and claims, without any official recognition, the title "Avocado Capital of the World".  It is often called or known as "The Friendly Village".  The Avocado Festival is held in the downtown strip annually and frequently draws large crowds.  It borders the famous Temecula wine country and boasts of its own wineries.  It is 16 miles from the Pacific beaches.  The average daytime temperature is in the low 70s.  In February the mornings and evenings can be a bit chilly (by California standards, LOL).  We suggest a light to mid sweater or jacket.
