    A reminder of much that I did in 101 many years ago, and giving me a refreshing sense of a "whole", or "big picture" more so than before. Presenter authorative, caring and fun. Great atmosphere and people working effectively with one another. Do this if you want to know about Berne and TA.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
