I really enjoyed the workshop. Gretel was professional in her presentation of this workshop allowed plenty of time for hands on practice.Gretel?s passion for her work and compassion for others was apparent from the moment I met her. I knew as soon as I walked into the training room that it was going to be a great day of learning. ~Veronica Doppler
