A participant comment:

The Fundamentals of Structural Thinking (FST) is an engaging, exhilarating workshop that will blow the lid off your expectations. While most intensive 4-day workshops can leave you feeling exhausted physically and emotionally, FST will leave you charged, energized, and thoroughly excited about continuing the work and learning. Robert and Rosalind are a perfect team, in harmony with each other and the participants. Their warmth and commitment to providing a quality experience for participants comes through in every word and action. I highly recommend the FST and can’t wait to take the certification program
