"Thanks to you for putting together two full days of 'Art as Therapy' for our small group.
The experience was wonderful, and we departed with many creative thoughts running around in our minds.
Thanks for being so patient, and for bringing out the unique inner self that is hiding within each of us.
Also, the Focusing workshop was relaxing and calming yet revealing. Another wonderful experience."
