Following pre-hurricane preparation and 2 weeks of lack of electricity post-hurricane, we’re finally able to get our lives back on track, hence this delayed announcement for the 12th annual AIMP retreat. Please forward this email to as many folks as you can. Those of you who attended previous retreats will receive a decent discount as specified on the website.

Please let me know if you have any questions. I hope to see you in the FL Keyes in February.

Best regards,
