I think what surprised me the most about Jeanne, was her ability to maintain a professional demeanor, while at the same time being very attuned to individual needs and personalities.  Jeanne is warm and welcoming with an incredibly nurturing approach.  She was able to attend to the group while addressing the needs of individuals as they emerged.

avatarMy experience during the four days with Jen was both profound and totally pragmatic. Things just look different, from how I handle a conversation at work to how I pray with my children at night. I know there is so much possible, beyond what I can figure out in any one moment. And I feel how much capacity and wellness we all have to guide us to navigate to the next moment with love and wisdom. Jen didn’t teach me any of that – she didn’t offer any of that – but she helped show me how to hear myself and trust in what I know.
