Boulder CO

So, I have decided to attend Suzanne Down's storytelling and puppetry workshop in Boulder CO from July 8 - 14. She says it will be held at the Waldorf school, which I assume means Shining Mountain, where Rahima used to have her conferences. The last time I went to one of those conferences, we flew into Colorado Springs and then rented a car to go to Boulder and we stayed in the Boulder youth hostel which was friendly, clean, and inexpensive. I am looking forward to traveling again! I am also very excited about the topic. Here is the information from the flyer:

Elements of Therapeutic ECE
