“We have been gridlocked on an issue for a couple years. We just talk in circles. Today, through the workshop, we had a break through in understanding and categorizing it so much differently. We had never looked at it from this perspective and understood the underlying dream and childhood connections before. Fascinating and incredibly helpful!”
