What People are saying about The Workshop

This Navigating Friendships course had the most impact on me…It was simple and gentle, but clarified ways that I've made mistakes in the past and warned me from making them again, while pointing the way to how I can be friends with people from other cultures, socioeconomic status, and religions in a healthy, happy, mutual way.”
