I could not possibly express enough gratitude for your offerings -- your questions, your insight and deep wisdom, your raw honesty and true integrity in all you do. We are both truly thankful you would give so much of your time, energy and gifts in such a n unquestioningly generous way. We talked more last night together post meeting and more deeply buried gremlins were shared and released -- we have never had such a powerful and quick cleansing and deepening in both our individual and partnership's evolution. Powerful is an understatement. So, thank you. You have MUCH to offer the world
