"I cannot begin to tell you the depth of the overall experience! You did a remarkable job in leading the three days. Your wisdom (pearls!), energy, humor, organization, and facilitation skills were simply outstanding! I took so very much from the training, particularly the modeling you did. I can simply say that is was—without a doubt—the best training I’ve ever encountered. It was your teaching style as well as the magnitude and depth of people that kept me entranced from the very first minute. Thank you again for an experience that I’ll remember for decades to come."
