COURSE FEEDBACK:

"I just completed this course and it was wonderful! I found it extremely helpful to be able to discuss in depth with gifted peers and to be heard by them. It helped me to realize how important it is for me to take the time to be with and understand myself as a gifted adult. It revived dormant aspects of myself that I now know need attention, and I feel better equipped to give that attention thanks to the tools I learned from Kelly. Thank you very much for offering this important work to gifted people. It is a huge relief to have self-development opportunities that are tailored for me!" --E.V.
"For anyone contemplating taking Kelly’s course – take it!! She’s an amazing leader. The content was on point, and I also really enjoyed “chatting” with other gifted individuals. It was a great way to get back into meditation and mindfulness." --Carrie

"Taking Kelly's was an absolute delight. She designed an interdisciplinary approach, from poetry, to neuroscience, to Buddhist psychology to allow us to enter step by step into this big concept that is mindfulness. Each session was accompanied by a practice, which allowed us to directly apply what we had learned conceptually on that day. Kelly was very open to discussing the topics with the participants and she even redesigned the last session to better fit our needs and to answer the questions that we had raised! She provided us with very useful tools to calm the much solicited limbic system of our gifted minds, and to reach a state of peace and compassion. It is only the beginning of the journey for me but taking this course Kelly allowed me to start! Thank you!" --Cécile
