bullet"Really interesting concepts, can't wait to try them. Practice was great."
bullet"Thank you for this course. It has been very informative and will be very useful. The only thing I can think of is that some video might aid in learning some of the techniques, although I found Connie's demonstrations and observations of our own practicing to be very helpful. This was a very intense course. Thank you to everyone responsible for putting this workshop on."
