The workshop is available in three size formats.  Due to the differences in the number of participants, various aspects of the workshop changes resulting in different benefits for each format.  The large group format is much like a class room course that is held when there are a sufficient number of participants.  The small group format is made available when friends or people connected through organizations, support groups, etc. collectively organize for a workshop session.  Finally, the private session is made available for a personalized version of the workshop.
