When I went to my first workshop, about three years ago, I was shocked by how challenging it was for me to listen in this new way. I immediately saw how practical and beneficial it would be for all my relationships.

I started using it with my teen daughter, and it has transformed our relationship 150%. My early attempts were rudimentary and awkward, yet the results were amazing. It brought a peaceful, accepting energy into our interactions that wasn’t there before.
