Will I be needling and be needled in this workshop?

Absolutely!  These courses are more than just point location – Drew will want to see you needle so he can help improve your needling technique.  Practise makes perfect!  This also means you will be needled by your partner.  Bring a trusted fellow student as your partner and take the course together!
