“I don’t know how to thank Lisa and Kathy enough for the transformative experience they have provided. They are teaching exactly what needs to be taught right now, and the way they go about teaching it – with such clarity, kindness, generosity, and vision – is incomparable. I have never in my life, experienced such a profound workshop experience.”

“I got so much out of this intensive – a greater sense of self and deeper awareness of my experience including bodily sensations, emotions and, most notably, how I am affected by my environment and letting that all in. It is an inspiration to be at the forefront of something amazing! I am so excited to have experienced such profound transformation in such a short amount of time and to be able to go out and share this with others. Thank you!”

“I’ve had a transformative experience professionally, personally, and spiritually. It has been everything I have hoped for from this training. I am grateful!”
