That sounds like a good topic right there: How to define success in one's relationships. I'd attend! Things like asking what would make someone feel successful, what attachments we have to being a "success," how to confront others' definitions of success and their possible judgments about the way we live our lives, etc. Lots of rich stuff there!

You'll be great, don't worry. Curious - how long are the workshops supposed to be?
The world opens up... when you do.
