Testimonials from past participants:
- Was completely enlightened and grateful for the invitation. I would and will recommend this to others. I feel to be a better person after participating with this group.
- Tom Paul created a safe and supportive environment to explore ways to enter deeper into ourselves in order to better help other people. My level of confidence for creative writing has soared today – I have been longing for this confidence so that I can share this intervention with my substance abuse clients!
- I’m so grateful and happy I came today – surrounded in a safe and inspiring environment. I’m leaving excited (and curious) to read more poetry and journal/creative expression … and continue to grow.
- Excellent training. Creative and informative for both professional and personal development. Adaptable for many levels.
