“It was a healing, beautiful life-changer. So much laughter and tears, too. Thanks to you three, and the five other courageous women from whom I received so much inspiration, encouragement and love!” —Cathy from Dallas

“What was deeply reinforced for me is the spiritual importance of speaking my desire, and offering myself the opportunity to receive pleasure in a most honoring way. It was self-affirming in that I was stating that “I am worthy to receive this”. The result was a powerful healing-of-shame event in my life.” —Anne from Florida
