    "When I came to this training, my ultimate goal was to improve my practice. What I did not realize was how much I could grow and learn about myself and the world around. "

    "​Laurence, Gernot, Rose and Lek are such beautiful, radiant people. From then, I have realized this training is only the beginning. When I needed to talk, they gave me space. When I had questions they were answered. I am eternally grateful for this perspective and I look forward to share this gift given to me - I will now go forth and become the teacher I once needed. Thank you."
