Foundation Level Students Loved the Workshop Experience

Students shared their feelings IMG_4047
We just finished another Foundation level workshop. While all classes are great, this class was a real joy and privilege to facilitate. There were 6 students. Everyone was focused on her own intent and completely supportive and accepting of everyone else. Everyone came ready to learn PetMassageTM and eager to return home to hone their new skills and begin a business. They were all such courteous and generous listeners to each others stories. It was like being in the presence of a clan of spiritual witnesses. During the course of the five days we were together, each of the students shared their feelings with me in private conversations.
