"This conference was one of the best. I loved the new venue .... particularly going back and forth between the two rooms. The natural light and huge windows in the eating area were so welcoming and felt like a beautiful rest zone. Then having the intimate lecture space was really protected and secluded for our group to listen well and focus. In addition, the food was outstanding and so delicious with awesome and thoughtful veggie options. The whole day inspired me and lifted me up so much. 


As well, I loved that you were fluid in allowing the speakers to go with the flow and talk and share so openly ... even outside the time set aside. To me, it was really wonderful to have extra time and more sharing. I really appreciated how you let the day evolve. 


Both you and Lubica were perfect hosts. Really I cannot say enough how meaningful, interesting, caring, thoughtful, and impactful the day was.
