Please note: We have worked with groups as large as 250 and as small as 8. Our experience shows that smaller group settings are more conducive to growth and change. With that said, if your group is large, we can still create a small group setting with creative programming and breaking up larger groups into smaller ones. Call or email us on how we can make your experience a success.
