Once a month, every member of the KTS community is invited to connect, collaborate, and share all things KTS related.  If you have taken Experiencing Speech or have been introduced to fundamental Experiencing Speech practices, or if you are interested in this aspect of the work, this webinar is for you!  Your KTS questions, solutions, phobias, phenomena, details, observations, obsessions, and fancies are all invited to the conversation. Our aim for the Webinar Series is to keep us connected on a regular basis, sustain our KTS conversations, and strengthen our growing KTS community.

Our webinars were inspired by VASTA’s forum on “Things that Work.”
