Participant Feedback

“Before doing the workshop I felt so alone. Now I feel so much more confident to deal with the challenges that lie ahead.”

“Over the last few months I have just wanted the world to stop for a minute. But after this weekend I’m ready to join the universe again.”

“It was great to meet others and listen to the stories and get guidance. Was I anxious? You bet! More Confident now? I sure am and looking to a better future.”

“I survived Phoenix! For all curious I highly recommend going. It was a great experience, the facilitators were all amazing and the group was very warm and open having even made some friends.”
