Sweet magic occurs when these 2 teachers team up and lead through a gentle learning process and hold/support your own personal transformation. To really learn new things, I need a positive/loving vibe and a safe space.  These 2 intuitive teachers provide just that. They are both experienced, compassionate and very encouraging  teachers! Highly recommended!
