What others say ...

"What an enlightening experience! I had mixed emotions coming in to the intensive because I was very scared to become a teacher. Donna, Charles, and Ellen are the perfect blend of teaching styles to show me that 1) I am not a freak 2) my feelings are natural and 3) I have natural gifts to offer my students.

I feel very confident that we worked on identifying those gifts and playing with a style of teaching to compliment them. Whenever I try to come up with the words to thank D/C/ and E, I start to get misty eyed, because they helped me find myself. There are no words of gratitude for that.

This program changed my life. I had no idea that I would feel so profoundly changed. I love you all for the opportunity to grow and develop into the person I forgot (somehow!!!) that I truly am. Deep, deep Namaste."
