Feedback from previous attendees

"I wanted to say a big thank you for the symposium you organised and ran.  I thoroughly enjoyed the entire weekend and learnt so much.  I appreciate all the effort you went to!" Taneesha, chiropractor

"It was such a valuable space for me to be in to see how people were working so authentically with such passion and while taking care of themselves. It definitely helped me to take the leap into exploring another other way of doing deep work with women. And thinking about it now feels like a lovely reminder that there is no correct or linear path to take. I'm looking forward to the next one!"
