Once you've got a great workshop idea, the next step is to find the right venue.

Since not all venues are not created equal, here are 3 questions every spiritual practitioner MUST ask before booking your spiritual workshop location.

Question #1: Do they have an established clientele and, if so, who are they?

Ideally, you want to book your workshop in a venue with an established clientele that matches the profile of your perfect workshop guest. The reasons are twofold:

First, you want to hold your event in a place that you feel comfortable in and that energetically matches your workshop topic.

Second, from a practical perspective, you want to draw from their existing clientele to fill your workshop, which leads us to our second question...

Question #2: Will they help to promote your event?

This is a big one, especially when you're just getting started. Always ask how you can work with the venue to promote your event to their clients. Here are a few ideas you can discuss with them...
Do they have a regular newsletter or e-zine and, if so, can you contribute an article or advertisement about your event?
Can you place fliers up about your event?
Will they include your event in any paid advertising or calendar listings?

Question #3: What is the financial and logistical arrangement?

This may seem basic, but believe it or not when I started hosting spiritual events I was so excited to present my workshops that I actually forgot to ask this question.

In my experience, most established venues work on a percentage split with the presenter. In exchange for their portion of the proceeds they provide some event promotion, staff to collect workshop fees and basic set-up and tear-down of the room.

But ~ and this is important ~ don't assume anything! Always check in advance to determine what the financial arrangement is and who is responsible for what. This is the best way to avoid confusion and get your workshop off to a great start.
