Blooming after being discarded for a younger, more perfect woman

By

“Your first workshop was just the impetus I needed to make a leap of faith. I had done a lot since my husband left, getting my survival worked out and then starting on my spiritual self. And some on my physical—had lost 40 pounds without trying and felt so much better. But your workshop made me realize just how much more I was. And this last one was a push off the cliff into flying free and easy. I feel like a flower that has been in a dormant state for years—now I'm basking in the sunlight of my friends, realizing how juicy I really am, open and blooming. When Judy the fashion advisor came by and helped me, I saw just how attractive I could be—that I had hidden in my overweight and sad clothes so not to be noticed and hurt more. She opened my eyes and FEELINGS for my beauty!” —Brook, bookkeeper
