Participant Stories

“The increase in energy/motivation as a result of this group that translated to other areas of my life was astonishing and welcomed. I quickly became aware that this positive psychology practice was ‘filling up my tank’ rather than another depleting task.”                   - Ruth

"I have formed relationships with others that I may never have formed if it were not for this workshop. This experience gave me the courage to ask others if they wanted to participate in a small group at church to encourage one another."    - Karen
