One participant said:
"I was not expecting this would make a huge difference in my life that it has. The material forced me to look at me, all of me, my hurdles, pain, grief, fears, and blocks. I soon discovered what values were the hardest for me... anything to do with me!!
I completed the course and wanted to help others gain what I had gained and became a facilitator. This was a very valuable experience for me I found so much inside of me I had not healed and by doing so my fears lessened and I grew a new understanding and compassion for myself. Something I previously only had for others.
My fear of being judged was challenged; I won and chains around me were broken. My journey continues every moment."
