I experienced a profound serenity yesterday. The space that you helped facilitate for me was just what I needed to see connections that I hadn’t noticed before. Thank you, Thank you.

The techniques learned were extremely effective at helping me recenter and refocus before starting my next task. The staff who participated were very grateful.
