Yes, I would be interested in a training. I contacted someone concerning a training in Tucson, but no one replied and I assumed that it did not take place. Also, I had read where there maybe one in New Mexico. I am also a trained facilitator with The Pachamama Alliance www.pachamama.org and conduct symposiums www.awakeningthedreamer.org and became interested in Transition Towns because I feel we need solid solutions and the two could be combined.
