Participant Testimonial: I am still bathing in the loving energy...

The workshop itself was wonderful! I had not fully understood what it means to be grounded, nor to really have that full sense of being in my body. I definitely have a deeper understanding of it now. Still have a lot to learn. Looking back, I would say I had felt like an infant with arms and legs flailing, with moments of calm, not understanding or realizing that there was a way I could maintain that calm centered grounded feeling. Throughout the day, I am now practicing grounding and doing the 5 Breath Fill Up. Thank you for these tools Suzanne!

And I am sure you know, but I will say it anyway: Suzanne is a gifted teacher and leader. 🙂 It was a pleasure to be with her and learn from her. It has been a week and I am still bathing in the loving energy. Going deeper.

Thank you.

Participant Testimonial: A necessary tool that will help me to...

This course taught me to ground and fill, a necessary tool that will help me to remain calm even in the face of chaos.  A terrific tool for me to use with my children as an at home Mom.  The more I can remain calm in my home and in my body, the more my children can mirror that.
