What Participants Have Said:

The information was extremely relevant to the issues I and my family, friends are experiencing.

The most helpful concept presented is that I only am in control of myself. I also appreciated that it was emphasized to not hurt myself, not hurt others, and not break property.

Zonta thank you for these workshops & having them open to the communities.

Truly enjoyed this workshop.

The workshop was relevant to issues I am experiencing.

I look forward to these workshops!  They help to ground me and keep me positive during these hard times.

I have been looking forward to this LifeForward so I can feel the energy of powerful and vibrant women being sent out into the universe. Thank you.

I feel inspired to make some healthy changes.

Much less tense than I was this morning; feel balanced.
