What People Are Saying

It’s so fabulous to have skilled clinicians present at such a prestigious conference.  Charles was engaging, kept the audience’s attention on track at every moment, and his expertise and reference points were outstanding!!!!

An “electric” presentation: original, and pushed the boundaries of my thinking.  Charles is a true pioneer in this domain.  I learned a lot. 

Robyn crafted such an incredible experience and so gently, too.  It was like she was leading without leading; more as though she offered us a choice to join and the non-judgemental way she offered it made me feel safe and comfortable. 

Love really is a miracle and so is guiding people towards how and where to find it. That’s what you do, Robyn.
