Past  participants of this program have said:

 “This perspective doesn’t bring you down. It lifts you up. You want to return to class. You feel good when you leave class. It’s informative and problem-solving rather than problem finding.”

“I was excited to go home from class and try the lessons and I looked forward to coming back. Some classes I have attended in the past depleted my energy and made me feel more depressed. This class was energizing.
