Testimonials

This was an amazing few days! It really helped me to find my center again — haven’t seen it for a long time!

All I feel and know is that I belong to our WIP community. I am so proud of myself to show up as me to share vulnerabilities in person without any fear for the first time in my life. Thank you for asking and thank you for listening.

This was so much better than expected. Very needed and appreciated. It was just the right mix of learning, thinking, connection and rejuvenation.
