I train in Aikido where victory is defined as having two parameters – speed and power. I learned in this class that speed actually means slowing down when necessary, because going slower gets you there faster. You cultivate more awareness and presence and can respond more elegantly. I also realized that force and power is about recognizing your weaknesses and shadow, so you can act more effectively and truly create positive change.

The greatest value of the class for me was setting aside time to focus on myself every week. I learned more about myself and how to better utilize my strengths in the future.

Dianne Lehm

Director of Community Development

This class has been very valuable and transformational for me. In about the second week I had an “aha” moment about balance in my life. Then I did the strengths finders and another moment of WOW I have some talents and gifts that I must start recognizing and using both in and out of work. I don’t know if I would have been able to stop myself and think about these things without this group’s help and time.

Jen and Ann do a wonderful job of encouraging focus on specific, actionable changes to make in your life.
