“One of the best trainings I have ever attended - a heart-centered, empathetic, person-centered space. Phenomenal speakers and topics! All very rich and valuable. Information is dense but presented in a very approachable and relatable way.”

“Thank you for such well-rounded, enlightening, and engaging presentations and workshops with such relatable, transparent, and open presenters! Top Notch!” 

"The Experience Transforms Practice series has been such a rich and rewarding journey - I feel empowered connected and better informed through all of the wealth of sharing of everyone's hearts and minds."

"I loved how the presenters moved in between structural and individual applications! I learned some tools as a supporter on an individual level but also some food for thought on ways I can contribute to broader changes in the system, or outside of it."

They balance professionalism with humanity
