This has been an eye opening class for me and I have really been riveted by your work.  Thank you for sharing this experience!  And of course thank you Alan and Karen for your amazing presence, even so far away across the pond!  I have learned a great deal in a short time.

Loved this course! I already want to get to the next one, feeling like I just started to get somewhere. The prompts were wonderful, made me think about different situations. It was great reading everyone's stories and tasting different styles, and Alan's feedback is priceless as usual.
