I loved the teaching style of the instructor. Well-structured, prepared discussions yet allowing personal notes, questions and share. The content and the flow of content is remarkable which prepared us to release our negative patterns while teaching us how to replace them with positive ones and increasing self-love and acceptance.

I loved everything, in particular, sharing openly in a safe space. I also liked the part when we talked about reinforcement of self-acceptance and falling in love with yourself. Thank you for everything… I really needed this workshop.

I really enjoyed this workshop series. Starting and ending with a meditation, the facilitators sharing their personal journeys and experiences which made it so much more real, relatable, and inspiring. Each week we are moving forward, there is a new step to take. There was a flow and I learned a lot of tools that I can utilize in my continuing journey. Thank you so much! This marks the beginning of my spiritual journey and thanks for giving me a great start!

I loved the open sharing, the community environment, the feeling of belonging, the activities that we did, the case studies, the journaling and the vision board? I am so happy to take part in this workshop. Kayla, thank you so much, you are so professional, so warmhearted and was so sweet to us. I now truly believe everything happens for the best like I met u. I will never forget the kindness I received in the workshop.

I really liked the positive journaling exercise we did in the second to last session. I also liked the guided meditations and imagery that we would work with. The loving and supportive energy of Kayla was very helpful. I also liked doing the group exercises, sharing with and hearing from the others in the workshop was very healing.

I really liked the way we shared our problems, concerns, feelings, progresses…etc. I used not to publicly discuss or share these with others, but now I realize that sometimes speaking out is the first and even a crucial step in acknowledging and solving problems.

I had 9 coaching sessions with Kayla in the past three months. It was a revealing and heartwarming experience. Kayla was extremely supportive, listening to my struggles and helping me clear my confusion. I generally tend to be quite reserved about my feelings in my relationship with others, so I was really surprised about how much I opened up – she is a very effective coach in terms of encouraging me to share my thoughts. Initially, I came to her with a lot of confusion about my life and the lack of self-confidence that makes me constantly anxious. As I talked, she could always find the key issue and probe more, and I ended up knowing more about myself each time with her guidance. She is also good at making connections about my stories and key points/people in my life, drawing a big picture of what makes me struggle and where/how I would find happiness. Now, I understand where the negative influences come from in my life, and with this awareness, I feel more certain about myself, and I am now ready to appreciate myself more. It was really heartwarming when she said that she wanted to hear from me one day saying that “I found my happiness and I just want to do whatever makes me happy.” Thank you for your wisdom and support
This was a transformative experience for me. The supportive community that was built encouraged exploration of self and the concepts presented within the workshop. I really enjoyed recognizing and the reflection we did on signs. It opened a world of spiritual interest for me that had been lost for some time for me. I really enjoyed the meditations that enabled interactions with our spiritual guides.
