“Thank you so much for creating such beautiful, potent, ceremonial space! I made some sweet connections with beautiful people 😀
I love the way you held the space, with both reverence as well as lightness and humor. It felt like a very inclusive circle, and I really appreciated the diversity of ages, races and types of people. I also really loved that everyone had a chance to share their prayers and intentions with the whole circle and be seen, held and supported in them. My favorite part was the sharing circle.”
